Verify Your Vote on the eSlate
Verify Your Vote - It's Your Right
It's your right and your responsibility as a voter - to verify your ballot choices before voting. eSlates allow voters to verify their ballot choices before casting their ballot. We strongly recommend that you compare the choices that appear on the screen with the choices that appear on the paper record before you push the "Cast Ballot" button to vote.
