What if I change my name after being registered?
Any registered voter who changes his or her name by marriage or otherwise is required to re-register and authorize the cancellation of the previous registration; but if the voter still resides in the same precinct he/she can, if otherwise qualified, vote upon making an affidavit at the polling place attesting that the voter is the same person who is registered to vote under his or her former name. The affidavit will be treated by the election authority as authorization to cancel the registration under the former name, and the election authority will register the person under his or her current name.
