CAN I VOTE A MAIL IN ABSENTEE & IN PERSON & HAVE BOTH COUNTED FOR THE SAME ELECTION??
Of course you don’t get to vote twice—only one time counts.
You can request & vote an Absentee Ballot. You can vote it & mail it back to the Board of Elections. If you decide to then go the Board of Elections for Early Voting or to your regular poll site you can! That just means that the ballot you mailed in will NOT be opened.
ALWAYS CALL THE BOE WITH YOUR QUESTIONS DIRECTLY-SOCIAL MEDIA & NEWS MAY NOT BE ABLE TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS AS WELL AS THE LOCAL STAFF.
