What if my name is not on the electoral roll or my information is incorrect at the polling location?

If you arrive at your polling location and your name is not on the electoral roll, your information is listed incorrectly, you do not have your ID, never received your absentee ballot, or have any other issues, you can ask to speak with the Judge of Elections. Additionally you can ask to fill out a provisional ballot. 

A provisional ballot records your vote, while the County Election Office determines whether it can be counted. Within 7 days after the election, the County Election Office will decide whether you were eligible to vote at the election district where you voted the provisional ballot. If you were eligible, they will count your provisional ballot
