  • If you've moved within your county and not (a) updated your voter registration records nor (b) provided required documents (proof of residence* and valid ID) at your precinct’s polling place, you can (1) cast a provisional ballot and (2) bring these required documents to the absentee board or county auditors office before the absentee board completes counting absentee and provisional ballots (usually the Monday or Tuesday after Election Day, depending on which type of election).
