As the November 3 General Election approaches, it is important that you know what will be on the ballot.
The ballot includes more than just the presidential election, it includes elections for the Senate, Congress, judges, voting on amendments and more.
Below is a sample ballot for the Madison County General Election.
According to Secretary of State John Merrill's office, due to the declared states of emergency, if you determine it is impossible or unreasonable to vote at your polling place, you can check the box on the absentee ballot application that is most applicable. If none of the boxes are appropriate, check the box which reads:
“I have a physical illness or infirmity which prevents my attendance at the polls. [ID REQUIRED]”
