Your signature on your voter record is used to verify your signature on a certificate for a vote-by-mail ballot or provisional ballot, a candidate petition, an issue petition or any signed writing requesting a ballot or making another change. The signatures must match in order for the ballot or petition to count or other change to be made. Signature updates can be made at any time. Please update your signature using a voter registration application (English/Español).
