NOTICE

Please be advised these are sample ballots and because the law requires rotation of the candidate’s names, the chronological order as listed may be different in your precinct.

Some listed candidates are elected in specific districts therefore some names listed on sample ballots may not appear on the ballot in your precinct.

Lincoln County uses a DS850 ballot scanner to count ballots.  The voter is required to blacken the oval.  If a voter chooses to write-in a name they are required to blacken the oval by the name they write-in for that race.

Once appointed, even if you volunteered, poll workers enjoy the same civil leave protection as those who serve on jury duty. Your employer must allow an employee the time to serve without threat of or loss of personal or holiday pay, sick leave, loss of overtime pay, or any other form of penalty for absence from work when serving as an election poll worker.

 

Should you decide to become a poll worker, you will be required to attend a training session prior to each primary and general election.
