MAJOR IMPACTS OF THE NEW VOTER PHOTO ID BILL
The newly enacted Voter Photo ID Bill may require voters to spend more time casting a ballot. We will attempt to keep the lines to a minimum, but cannot guarantee there will not be a short wait. Please plan accordingly.
Voter Registration Changes
The residency requirement has changed from 10 days to 28 consecutive days. Please refer to the above chart to determine eligibility dates for the upcoming elections. Please also be aware that Electors can no longer use a corroborating witness as a proof of residency to register.
University and college students may establish residency for registration by using the combination of a college ID with a photo and a fee payment receipt dated no earlier than nine months before the election.
Registration ends at 5 p.m. on the Friday before Election Day and begins again on Election Day. No registration will be allowed on the Monday before Election Day.
In-person absentee voting begins the third Monday before the election. By law, even if the ballots are in the clerk’s office, electors cannot vote in the clerk’s office until this date.
In- person voting ends at 5:00 p.m. on the Friday before Election Day. By law, no in-person absentee voting can take place on the Saturday, Sunday or Monday before the election.
In Person Voting
Information will be provided pertaining to the new election laws in an effort to educate the electors.
