USAGov Answers FAQs About Voting

WASHINGTON, Oct. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The coronavirus pandemic makes the 2020 election season different than any before it. And it's leaving a lot of people looking for information on how, where, and when to cast their vote. 

This year, like every other election year, USAGov provides clear, reliable information about voting and elections. Explore answers to some frequently asked questions we receive on social media and through the USAGov Contact Center. They can help resolve your own voting questions ahead of November 3.

Question: How does voting by mail work, and what are my options?

Answer: Sometimes, life events make it hard to vote in person on Election Day. Each state has mail-in absentee voting, but some allow you to take part only in certain circumstances. 

To find out if you can vote absentee this year, visit your state election office website or contact your local election officials.

If you plan to vote absentee, here are some steps you may need to take:

Q: What happens if I get an absentee ballot in the mail? Can I still vote in person on November 3?

A: If you received an absentee ballot in the mail, but want to vote in person, hold onto that ballot. Typically, you can exchange your uncast absentee ballot for an in-person ballot, or complete your absentee ballot and hand it in at your polling place. Rules are different in each state. Check with your state or local election office for the specific procedures for where you live. 

Q: How do I know who and what will be on the ballot on Election Day?

A: Voter guides and sample ballots can show who the candidates are and any state or local measures up for a vote. Reviewing them before Election Day can help you decide who to vote for and speed up your time in the voting booth.
