6. PA: If ballot is cast in correct county but wrong precinct, it is counted for the portion...
Edited on Thu Jan-20-11 12:14 AM by demodonkey
...of the ballot the voter would have been eligible for in his/her home precinct.

For example, if you vote in your county in the wrong precinct, but it is in the same Congressional District as yours, your vote for Congress Rep counts.


If it is determined that the individual voting the provisional ballot was eligible to vote in the county in which the ballot was cast but not at the election district where the ballot was cast, the county board of elections shall open the envelope and only count that portion of the ballot that the individual would have been eligible to vote in his proper election district and at the election district where the vote was cast if: (A) the county board of elections confirms that the individual did not cast any other ballot, including an absentee ballot, in the election; and (B) the individual casting the provisional ballot is a resident of the county in which the provisional ballot was cast. (ii) In the event that the individual casting the provisional ballot is not found to be a resident of the county in which the provisional ballot was cast, the ballot shall not be counted.
