Preparing to Vote

Within two weeks of registering to vote, you will receive your voter registration card. The card will have your full name, date of birth, permanent address, voter registration number, date of registration, party affiliation, and the location of your assigned poll center. You can only report to the poll center that is listed on your voter registration card. You will not be able to cast a ballot at a poll center that is not listed on your card.

What to Bring to Vote

In order to vote, you will need to bring your voter registration card and a photo I.D. with a signature. Examples of adequate photo identification are:

  • Driver’s License
  • Identification Card issued by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles
  • United States Passport
  • Military Identification
  • Student Identification
  • Debit or Credit Card

What’s on the Ballot?

The 2016 ballot will not only ask you to cast your vote for the U.S. Presidency and Vice-Presidency, but it also asks for your vote on congressional representatives and district judges. Such additional items on the ballot differ in each precinct (i.e. geographical area). Contact your Supervisor of Elections for more information on the items that will appear on your ballot.

The ballot will also ask you to vote “Yes” or “No” on proposed Constitution Amendments (which are simply proposed changes to the Constitution). For a simple list of these amendments, visit:
