The Addison Skyway Marina would like to share great tips when going to vote. You have rights when you go to vote at the polls.
If the Location Is About to Close
If you’re waiting in line when polls close, you have the right to stay in line as long as it takes to be able to cast your ballot.
If You Make a Mistake
If you make a mistake on your ballot, you have the right to ask for a new ballot. (Never cross out selections because it could result in confusion about what you selected.)
If You Need Accommodations
Polling places should be accessible to all voters, including those with disabilities. Poll workers are required to make reasonable accommodations to allow you to vote, in accordance with ADA standards.
In some states, voters have the right to request voting materials in another language.
If You Haven’t Registered to Vote
In some states, you can register in person at your elections office or at the polling place through Election Day. If you haven’t already registered and your state’s deadline to register online or by mail has passed, check with your local elections office to see if in-person registration is an option.
If You See Voter Interference
Candidates’ supporters generally have the right to electioneer (campaign) near polling places, but only from a certain distance, set by the state. No one is allowed to threaten or intimidate voters. If you see or experience voter interference or intimidation, call 1-866-OUR-VOTE (866-687-8683).
