If you do not show ID – and you are at your correct polling place or an early voting site and your name appears on the poll list – you do not need to vote a provisional ballot.
Instead, you must complete the “Affirmation of Voter Identity” form. You will then be permitted to vote a regular ballot.
If your name does not appear on the official poll list you will be asked to sign an affidavit that says you are a registered voter in that Election District and that you are eligible to vote in that election. You may then vote a provisional ballot.
In Delaware a provisional ballot ONLY covers Federal offices; it cannot be used for local elections. If you vote a provisional ballot in the wrong Election District your ballot will not be counted. If you vote by provisional ballot but do not show acceptable identification at the polling place, your provisional ballot will also not be counted.
