Important Voting Information
1. The last day to register to vote is 5pm Friday, Oct. 12th. BUT people can register to vote or change any personal voter information during Early Voting.You cannot register to vote on Election Day.
2. You will only be asked to show an ID if you are a new Polk County registered voter and you did not provide the last 4 numbers of your social security number or drivers license number when you registered or if the number you provided when you registered did not match what the DMV has in their record. Otherwise, you do not have to show an ID to vote in this election. 3. Voting by mail (Absentee Voting) To request an absentee ballot you can:
1. Download the application form at: http://www.polknc.org/docs/Elections/Absentee_Ballot_
2. Call the Board of Elections office at 894-8181 and ask
them to mail you an application.
3. Go by the Board of Elections office on the 2nd floor of the
Womack Building in Columbus and complete an application.
Once the Board of Elections office receives your application, they will mail you a paper ballot so you can vote. No ID is required, but you must have two witnesses sign the back of the ballot envelope before mailing it in. Use a $.50 stamp to mail the ballot back. You can also hand deliver your ballot or have the ballot delivered by a near relative to the Elections office at the Womack building.
4. Early Voting is the best way to make sure your vote will be counted! With Early Voting, there is time to clear up any issues that may arise (such as not voting at the right precinct). If you wait until Election Day to vote, this may not be possible. Also, unforeseen situations, such as an illness or hospitalization, could prevent you from being able to vote on Election Day.
5. Curb Side Voting is available during Early Voting at the Womack Building in Columbus and at each of the seven polling sites on Election Day, Nov. 6thYou will be ask to sign an statement saying you have difficulty walking into the polling site or standing at the voting machine or some other disability. A paper ballot will be brought to your car for voting.
To avoid problems, vote in Early Voting.
