marking and depositing the ballot;


voting for a write-in candidate;


casting a provisional ballot; and


securing an additional ballot if the voter’s original ballot is spoiled.


The poster must also include the following information:


the date of the election and the hours during which the polling place is open;


general information on voting rights under state and federal laws, including information on the right of an individual to cast a provisional ballot and the individuals to contact if a person believes these rights have been violated; and


general information on state and federal laws that prohibit acts of fraud or misrepresentation.
