Please be advised these are sample ballots and because the law requires rotation of the candidate’s names, the chronological order as listed may be different in your precinct.
Some listed candidates are elected in specific districts and because of this some names listed on the sample ballots may not appear on the ballot in your precinct.
Lincoln County uses an optic scanner to count the ballots. The voter is required to blacken the oval with the special marking device they will be handed as the polls when they receive their ballot. If a voter chooses to write in a name they are required to blacken the oval by the name they write-in for that race.
