If you applied for a Vote-By-Mail ballot, but have decided to vote in person instead,
You may vote on Election Day. You may bring the unused ballot to your polling place for voiding, but that is not necessary. You may also complete it at home and deliver it to your polling place on Election Day. Be sure to use both envelopes and sign where requested, just as if you were mailing your ballot or using a drop box.
 
If you are listed as an inactive voter,
You will also be asked to present identification which shows your name and the address at which you are registered to vote. It is not required that you present photo identification. Acceptable forms of identification include: a driver's license, state-issued ID card, recent utility bill, rent receipt, or lease. More information here.
 
Emergency absentee ballots
If you have been admitted to a healthcare facility or you are instructed to quarantine in your home within 1 week of the election, you may use the absentee ballot application to designate someone of your choice to deliver a ballot to you. The person you designate to deliver your ballot will need to bring a signed application to your local election office, pick up your absentee ballot, bring it to you, and return it for you by the close of polls on Election Day. Emergency ballots may be requested up until the close of polls. (Use the usual absentee ballot application form; there is not a special one.)
