GRACE PERIOD VOTER REGISTRATION
“Grace Period” Voter Registration is an extension of the period of time for a voter to register to vote, or to update their voter registration information. This “Grace Period” Registration extends voter registration from the normal close of voter registration up through the 14th date before the election. This voter may now cast a “Grace Period” ballot by contacting the election authority’s office.
