A provisional ballot is a paper ballot used by a voter whose eligibility to vote is in question and cannot be determined on Election Day. The Elections office has three business days to determine eligibility of a provisional voter.
In accordance with SB 202, provisional ballots of voters who are voting outside of their precinct will not be counted unless it is after 5:00 p.m. Voters are highly encouraged to vote at their assigned precinct. If the voter can not get to their precinct, they must fill out a sworn statement and provide an explanation. Provisional ballots of voters voting outside of their precinct will only be counted between the hours of 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
