If you happen to forget your ID when you go to the polls, you can cast a provisional ballot. Provisional ballots are what counties resort to when the voter’s eligibility is uncertain. As a voter, you have the right to request a provisional ballot. These ballots are counted after counties have been able to determine the voter’s eligibility, and they may ultimately be rejected.
There are other reasons you may need a provisional ballot beyond forgetting your ID such as if you attempt to vote in a precinct or county other than the one where you are registered, if your name or address does not match the voter rolls or your registration does not immediately appear on the database. Provisional ballots are counted last, and you will receive notice in the mail telling you if your ballot was counted.
If someone is attempting to interfere with your or anyone’s right to vote, it may be voter intimidation and a violation of federal law.
Examples of intimidation may include:
• aggressively questioning voters about their citizenship, criminal record, or other qualifications to vote ,in a manner intended to interfere with the voters’ rights
• spreading false information about voter requirements, such as an ability to speak English, or the need to present certain types of photo identification (in states with no such requirement)
