You may be challenged by election judges, other registered voters in the voting site, or pollwatchers with valid credentials. Three of the most common reasons you could be challenged include:
- Your signatures are substantially different on your application and voter registration record.
- It is believed that you no longer reside at your registration address.
- It is believed that you are not the person you claim to be.
If you cannot provide the required documentation or refuse to give the sworn oath, you may not cast a ballot. You may be processed as a provisional voter, and then you have seven days to provide the required documentation to the Lake County Clerk's office.
