Help with the Polling Sites / Voting Districts Interactive Map

Make sure your vote counts!

These notices explain how to make sure your vote counts and how to avoid over votes (filling in too many ovals) and double votes (voting more than once for the same candidate). Read the Notice concerning overvotes and double votes.
