Voting In Person

How to Mark Your Paper Ballot

To mark your ballot correctly, COMPLETELY fill in the oval next to your choice with blue or black ink. Any other mark may not be read by the scanner. FS.101.5611

Casting Your Ballot

Hernando County uses an optical scan voting system called ImageCast Evolution (ICE) Tabulation System.

This Voting System uses paper ballots. At the polling place an Election Worker issues a paper ballot to the voter and directs the voter to a private voting booth. The voter marks the ballot with the marking pen provided in the booth, proceeds to the ballot box and inserts the voted ballot into the ICE unit. FS.101.56075

Correcting a Mistake on Your Ballot

If you make a mistake on your ballot, do not erase or use white out. If you are voting at your polling place, ask for a replacement ballot. Prior to the casting of the ballot, each voter is allowed up to two (2) replacement ballots for a total of three (3) ballots. If you are using a Vote-by-Mail ballot and you make a mistake on your ballot, call the Elections Office at (352) 754-4125 for further instructions. FS.101.5608(2)(b)
