§3-3-9. Voting in person after having received and after having
voted an absent voter's ballot.
(a) Any person who has applied for and received an absent
voter's ballot but has not voted and returned the same to the
official designated to supervise and conduct absentee voting may
vote in person at the polls on election day provided he or she
returns the absent voter's ballot to the election commissioners at
the polling place. Upon return of the absent voter's ballot the
election commissioners shall destroy the ballot in the presence of
the voter, and one of the poll clerks shall make a notation of this
fact as directed by instructions issued by the secretary of state.
In the event the person does not return the absent voter's ballot,
he or she will have his or her vote challenged by one or more of
the election commissioners or poll clerks.
(b) No person who has voted an absent voter's ballot may vote
in person on the day of the election.
