    FAQ
      Elections & Voting
    Can I vote a "split" ticket?
     
    Answer:


    August Primary

    You cannot "split" your ticket (i.e., vote in more than one party column) when voting in the August primary. Voters participating in an August primary must confine their votes to a single party column.

     

    November General Election

    You can "split" your ticket when voting in the November general election.  A voter participating in a November general election who wishes to cast a "split" ticket can vote for individual candidates of his or her choice under any party or can vote a "straight party" ticket and vote for individual candidates under any other party.  The votes cast for individual candidates under the other parties will override the straight party vote in the races involved.
