Voting Process Overview

Whether you have voted with ElectionBuddy before, or are voting for the first time, you may have questions about the notice you received, ballot access, or the electronic voting process itself. This will guide you through locating your credentials, accessing the ballot, and submitting your vote.

Voters receive a Notice to access the ballot, and the voting process is simple - click the access link, make your choices, verify your choices, and submit your ballot. Voters do not need an ElectionBuddy account to vote.
