If your signature on the certification envelope for your mail ballot is found to be defective or incomplete by election officials, you will be provided with a written notice of the error 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 or
- your signature does not match the signature on your mail ballot application or the signature on file with the state’s voter registration system.
The Board of Elections will provide a form through which you can correct the problem.
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 your missing or deficient signature by completing the form provided by the Board of Elections. Such completed form must be received by no later than 4:00 p.m. on the third day following the date of a Primary Election or 4:00 p.m. on the seventh day following a General or Special Election to guarantee that your vote will be counted.
