What do I do if my mail-in ballot is damaged? Do I need to return the damaged ballot?

You can return the ballot, the secrecy envelope, and the outer declaration envelope to the Voter Services office during regular business hours. Our staff will be able to assist you in replacing your damaged ballot. 

On Election Day

Option 1 - Take your ballot, secrecy envelope and the outer declaration envelop to your polling place on election day. The poll worker at your designated polling location will be able to void if for you; enabling you to vote in person.

Option 2 - If you do not return the balloting materials to either Voter Services or to your polling place, you are only able to vote with a provisional ballot.
