I saw this posted from a seasoned poll worker:
1. READ ALL OF THE BALLOT QUESTION BEFORE YOU COME.
-May I suggest that you read all of the ballot questions via your paper sample ballots that you got in the mail BEFORE you get to the polls including the municipal and state questions.
2. BRING YOUR PAPER BALLOT SAMPLE WITH YOU.
-It might also be helpful if you bring the sample paper ballots to the polls to hand to people in the line ahead of you who may not have read them. (I'm going to bring the three that our house got for that reason as I have done in the past). -I have seen some folks spend quite a bit of time in the booth later saying that they trying to understand the long questions (including those folks who had "forgot their reading glasses").
3. LEARN FIRST WHAT DISTRICT YOU LIVE IN (not just what poll location).
If you don't know what district you live in you would be well advised to find out beforehand via a neighbor, as some folks encounter unneeded frustration as to which district table to go to.
4. IF YOU ARE A NEWLY REGISTERED VOTER, -BRING ID THAT HAS YOUR ADDRESS ON IT. (or at least a piece of first class mail with your name and address).
If they don't find your name in the book, you can fill out a "Provisional Ballot".
5. It is really best to NOT WEAR ANY CAMPAIGN STUFF or you could be looking for a potential hassle from poll workers.
6. TIME OF DAY: And finally, If you have a time choice, -in my experience, -mid-morning and mid-afternoon are the "lightest" times.
7. SHOW UP:
Be a part of history! -It's going to be an exciting day!
8. If you are in line when the poll closes they have to allow you to vote.
