PRIMARY 2023 SAMPLE BALLOTS
All Parties, All Precincts
CAN I VOTE IN PERSON IF I ALREADY GOT A MAIL-IN OR ABSENTEE BALLOT?
Yes, you can vote in person at your polling place on Election Day IF you have not mailed or returned your ballot to the Election Bureau. You will need to bring the ballot and all the envelopes that came with it to the poll, complete a short form, and surrender everything to the Judge of Election to be spoiled. Then you can vote normally on a regular ballot.
If for any reason you cannot surrender both your ballot and the envelopes to the Judge of Election, you will vote on a provisional ballot.
HOW DO I COMPLETE MY MAIL-IN OR ABSENTEE BALLOT?
PLEASE FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS that came with your ballot or your vote may not be able to be counted. These include:
1. Seal your ballot in the white Secrecy Envelope before inserting it into your return envelope. Do not write anything on your ballot except votes, and do not write anything at all on the Secrecy Envelope.
2. SIGN your name where indicated on the "Declaration" section on the back of your return envelope.
3. Write TODAY'S DATE (the date you sign the envelope) in the space provided under your signature.
4. Mail your ballot (no postage necessary!) or bring it to the Fayette County Election Bureau by 8 PM on Election Day. POSTMARKS DO NOT COUNT; your ballot must be received by the Election Bureau by 8 PM. Note that you must bring your OWN ballot to the Election Bureau. If you have a disability that prevents you from returning your own ballot, contact the Election Bureau for information on how to designate an agent to carry your ballot.
Voter registration and applications for mail-in/absentee ballots for the May 16 Primary are now closed. Voters experiencing a true emergency that would prevent them from voting in person on Tuesday may apply for an emergency absentee ballot. Contact the Election Bureau for more information.
Voter registration for the November election will open shortly after the Primary is certified.
