I NEED HELP FILLING OUT MY BALLOT:

MY COLLAGE STUDENTS IN OTHER STATES:
If you receive her/his ballot in mail, send it out to them asap so that they Vote-By-Mail.
HOW DO I TRACK MY MAIL-IN-BALLOT:
IF YOU INSIST ON VOTING IN PERSON ON ELECTION DAY:
1- You can only drop off your own ballot at GR Train Station or Women’s Club.
2-You can only cast a provisional paper ballot on Election Day.
Please note: There will be NO voting machine on Election Day at any of the polls.
Provisional ballots will have to be processed and verified at the Board of Elections prior to being counted and that can take 10-12 days.
We cannot emphasize enough how important it is that you vote early and prior to the Election Day. We do not want to overwhelm the polls on the day of Election.
Please share this information with your family and friends to do the same and feel free to post questions here. We will do our best to answer your question.
