ELECTION & VOTING FAQ

An acceptable form of photo ID
  • If you are 18-69 years old, then you may use an approved photo ID that is expired for up to 4 years. If you are 70+ years old, then the photo ID may be expired for more than 4 years.
  • If you do not have a photo ID, then you may fill out a Reasonable Impediment form, and use a supporting form of ID:
    • Voter registration certificate, or
    • Certified US (including territory) birth certificate, or
    • Current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck (must show your name and ANY address) or
    • Government check (must show your name and ANY address) or
    • Any other government document showing your name and ANY address (examples: an out-of-state license, a government employee ID)
  • Voters who do not have an acceptable form of ID or a supporting document with them may vote on a provisional ballot but must come to any of our ten branch locations within six days after the election to verify their identification (also known as “curing”).
  • Library cards of any kind (Beaumont Public Library System) ARE NOT acceptable forms of ID.
Your printed sample ballot or handwritten notes
  • Phones, tablets, laptops, and other electronic devices are not to be used within 100 feet of the entrance of a vote center. It is against the law, as they can be used as recording devices.
An assistant, if needed
  • If you need help in the voting booth, you may bring someone to help you read the screen. You must notify the presiding judge so that your helper can take an oath and sign the appropriate paperwork, swearing they are not forcing you to vote against your will or persuading you to vote a certain way.
  • If you are deciding to vote in person, rather than use your mail ballot, then bring your mail ballot to surrender.
  • If you do not bring your mail ballot with you, no problem. The election workers will set you up so that you can vote provisionally.
  • The ballot is available in four languages: English, Spanish, Vietnamese, and Chinese
  • Voting machines let you increase the font size or contrast on the screen
  • Curbside voting is available at every location for those who need it. You just need to ring the buzzer under the blue sign that is set in the parking lot.
  • Accessibility booths that are wider and have a separate control to accommodate mobility devices or a chair
  • Remote interpreters for those who need language assistance (i.e. American Sign Language, Arabic, Hindi)
  • Voting machines can hook up to components for voters with disabilities (i.e. Sip and Puff devices, headphones)

You must manually select each of your choices for every contest. Candidates will have the party they are affiliated with listed under their names.

After you print your ballot from the voting machine, you must scan your printed ballot into the machine near the exit. The Scan records your vote digitally two different ways, and stores the paper ballot in the secured box it sits on. When you see the American flag on the screen, you have successfully cast your ballot. For multiple pages of ballot paper, insert the pages one at a time and wait until you see the flag before repeating the process with your second sheet.

To cure your ballot means to fix an error so that it can be officially counted.
If you voted provisionally because you did not have an appropriate ID or supporting document, then you must cure your ballot within six days of the election.
