2. Use a black pen or pencil to fill in the ovals. Please do not use any other colored pens.

3. Place your ballot in the Certificate Envelope and be sure to fill out the front of the Certificate Envelope and sign it. The number one reason ballots are not counted is because the voter forgets to sign the envelope.
