  • You don't have to vote in all contests. Your other votes will still count.​​​
  • You cannot change your vote once you've mailed or dropped off your ballot. 

Obtaining a Replacement Ballot

If your ballot arrives damaged, you make a mistake, spill something, lose your ballot, or for any other reason, contact your county elections office for a replacement ballot.
