Ballot curing is the process of fixing any problems with your absentee or mail ballot to ensure that your vote is counted. You will have very little time to fix issues with your ballot, so act quickly.
- Use your state's online ballot tracking tool to check whether your ballot has been received and counted. If your state does not have an online tool, call your local election office and ask.
- If your absentee ballot was rejected and it's before Election Day, you can probably still vote in person on Election Day at your polling place. Your local election office can provide more information about the rules around voting in-person after your ballot was rejected.
- If your ballot was rejected and it's after Election Day, you will need to act quickly. In most cases you will need to appear in person at your local election office with photo ID within 2-3 days of Election Day.
