What if I am offered a provisional ballot?

A provisional ballot is a paper ballot used to record your vote when there is an unresolved question about your eligibility to vote. It will only be counted if your eligibility is later verified and should only be used as a last resort.  You should never be turned away from a polling place just because poll workers are not sure whether you are eligible to vote. Be sure to ask the poll worker what steps, if any, you must take to make sure your ballot is counted.
