David Orr, Cook County Clerk

Provisional Voting

If your registration record cannot be found or your eligibility to vote is questioned at the polls, you may still cast a provisional ballot.

A provisional ballot includes all offices that are on the regular ballot, but is counted only if the Clerk's office can verify your registration.

By implementing provisional voting as part of the Help America Vote Act, the Cook County Clerk's office ensures that all qualified voters have the opportunity to cast ballots.To learn more about the Help America Vote Act (HAVA), visit www.eac.gov
