Casting Your Vote

The Buncombe County Board of Elections would like to inform you of the numerous ways you can vote in an election. Take a look at the different categories below to help you decide what way works best for you.

Voting Machine Instructions

After receiving your ballot from the election official, fill in the oval located next to your selection for a candidate or choice of an issue. When you have finished filling in your ballot, you will feed your ballot into the DS200 machine.

Common ballot problems occur when voters vote for too many candidates in one race or when voters cast their ballots in the wrong precinct. Make sure you read your ballot carefully and understand how many candidates to vote for.

If you have a question, please ask a Poll Worker. If you make a mistake on your ballot, return it to a Poll Worker and ask for a new one. You can request up to two replacement ballots. Be sure to double check your ballot for accuracy, as improperly marked votes will not be counted. Once your ballot is scanned and accepted, your vote is final.
