Debbie Shirley reminds voters to, please, when you enter early voting, you will receive a ticket with a code that brings up the correct ballot style for the voter’s precincts on the voting machine. Do not leave the early voting place until you have cast your ballot on a voting machine. You vote will not be valid until you see a flag at the end of your voting time. When you have voted, a review ballot summary will appear. Pressing the button to verify the summary will then bring up a second verification, “Yes, I want to cast my ballot.” When you have pressed that button, a flag will appear than that will verify to you that the vote has been counted.
