In each election, we compare the signature on your return envelope to the signature on your voter registration record. A ballot is only counted if we can match it to the signature on your record. 在每次選舉,我們都會將在您回郵信封上的簽名與您選民登記檔案中的簽名作比較。當我們能夠將其與在您的檔案中的簽名吻合才能計算選票。

Over time, your signature can change. Update your signature to make sure that when we verify your vote, we are comparing against how you sign your name now. 您的簽名可能會隨着時間改變。更新您的簽名,以確保當我們確證您的投票時,我們會與您現在簽名的方式進行比較。
