After a voter has marked a provisional ballot, the voter shall enclose the ballot in the envelope on which the voter’s executed affidavit is printed. The person shall seal the envelope and deposit it in a box available for the deposit of provisional ballots.


At the time a person casts a provisional ballot under Subsection (b), an election officer shall give the person written information describing how the person may use the free access system established under Section 65.059 (Notice to Provisional Voter) to obtain information on the disposition of the person’s vote.
