You will find two valuable reference guides at your workstation.
- The Material Omissions Chart is a comprehensive, user-friendly table outlining acceptable/unacceptable standards for the review of B envelopes. As an election officer, you will be expected to make important decisions regarding the acceptance or rejection of a voter’s ballot based on the information provided by the voter on his B envelope. These decisions must be made fairly and consistently. If there is any question about the information on a voter’s B envelope, the answer can usually be found in the Material Omissions Chart.
However, if you are ever in doubt, CALL THE CHIEF.
- The HAVA (Help America Vote Act) Guidelines is used when reviewing submissions from voters who must provide a copy of an acceptable form of identification with their ballot. Refer to these guidelines to determine if the voter has submitted an acceptable form of ID.
