I was given a provisional ballot to vote, why?
A provisional ballot is given to anyone who is not on the polling location's roster or if the voter was unable to provide a valid from of ID. There are a few reasons why your name was not included on the roster.

- You recently moved and did not update your voter information in time
- You voted at a polling place not assigned to you
- You requested an early ballot by mail
- Your voter registration is no longer active or you are not registered to vote at all

If you voted at the correct polling place, provided proper identification and are registered to vote in the county in which you voted, your provisional ballot will be counted.
