Grace Period Registration / Voting
This "Grace Period" allows a new voter to register to vote, or to update their registration information during this period and once the voter has registered or updated their registration they must cast their ballot at that time. "Grace Period" voters do not get to cancel their ballot and vote at the polls on election day.
Same-Day Voter Registration / Voting
Similar to Grace Period Registration/Voting, the Same-Day Voter Registration/Voting occurs on the day of the Election at the voter's home Vote Center. The voter can change the name or address with the two forms of ID showing current name and address.
