For citizens who are qualified to vote in the April 9 Second Congressional District Special Election but who miss the standard March 12, 2013 voter-registration deadline, there is a safety net.
From March 13 through April 6, voters may register, update their address or file name changes during the "Grace Period."
Note: During the "Grace Period," you must register in person -- and then immediately vote during that same visit.
A Grace Period voter must present two forms of identification, at least one of which shows the current address. Acceptable forms of identification include:
- Driver's license
- State identification card
- Current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck stub, or other government document that shows your name and address.
