There will also be a notice to voter and bill of rights.  You may ask an election inspector to explain how to vote, or if you need any assistance.

    If you vote during the early voting period, you are not eligible to vote on Election Day.

    Votes cast before election day during the early voting period will be canvassed and reported after 9 p.m. on Election Day. (Polls are open on Election Day from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.)
