What do I do if I receive more than one ballot?

You may receive an updated ballot because your residential address or name changed after the initial ballot mailing. Sometimes this happens when you interact with the Department of Licensing for drivers’ licensing services or if you have moved to a new address.

If you receive two ballots, please open both packets. One should have an insert indicating that it is “Replacement/Reissued Ballot.” Please vote and return the replacement ballot. It has the correct races and precinct information for your new address.

If you make a mistake and vote the initial ballot, the elections office will simply hold it and ensure that you don’t submit the replacement. If the replacement isn’t received, your initial ballot will be counted.
