If you vote a provisional ballot, you must be given a written notice of rights that includes:
- A statement that you have the right to bring further evidence (if you choose) of your eligibility to the Supervisor of Elections. You have until 5 p.m. of the second day after the election to do so.
- A statement that if you voted a provisional ballot solely because you did not bring in identification, you do not have to bring in further evidence of eligibility. The local canvassing board will count your ballot if you voted in the right precinct and the signature on the provisional ballot certificate matches the signature on the voter registration record.
- A statement that if you voted a provisional ballot because your personal identifying number could not be verified, you can provide in person or by copy through fax, e-mail, or mail a copy of the card with the identifying number to the Supervisor of Elections and that the deadline is 5 p.m. of the second day after the election to do so.
- Instructions on how you can find out after the election if your provisional ballot was counted, and if not, the reason(s) why.
- A statement that if this is a primary election, you should contact the Supervisor of Elections office immediately to confirm that you are registered and will be able to vote in the general election.
Always be sure that you are voting in the precinct that corresponds to your address of legal residence.
