We want to make sure that you are aware of your rights while voting. Here are some major things to remember: 

  • If the polls close while you’re still in line, stay in line — you have the right to vote. 
  • If you make a mistake on your ballot, you can ask for a new one. 
  • If the machines are down at your polling place, you can ask for a paper ballot.
