Exception: Grace Period Registration
New legislation provides for in-person voter registration, or execution of a change of address for an already registered voter, during the period of the 27th to the 3rd day before an election. normally, voter registration closes 28 days prior to election day. However, this new legislation provides a "grace period" whereby a person may register at the office of the election authority only during the 25-day period following the normal close of registration. Anyone registering during this period will be required to vote in person at the time of registering. All "grace period" ballots will then be counted in the office of the election authority and not transmitted or counted in the vote center. Grace period voters cannot cancel their ballot and vote in the vote center on election day.

A woman who continues to use her maiden name after marriage may vote without having to complete an affidavit if registered under her maiden name. See more details on voter registration.
