If any of the signatures on the certification envelope for your mail ballot are found to be defective or incomplete by election officials, you will be provided with notice and an opportunity to “cure” (fix) the issue(s).
The Board of Elections will attempt to notify you of the defect if you:
- omitted your signature
- your signature does not match the signature on your mail ballot application or the signature on file with the state’s voter registration system
- you did not provide the signatures of two witnesses or a notary
The Board of Elections will provide a form through which the problem can be corrected.
The Board of Elections may also attempt to notify you of the defect via phone or email if they have your contact information.
You must cure the missing or deficient signature(s) to guarantee that your vote will be counted. The form provided by the Board of Elections must be received no later than 4:00 p.m. on the third day following the date of a Primary or seven days after the General or Special Election Day.
