This week's 'Ask Evan' question comes from Patricia V. She asks, "can people who voted absentee ballots also show up on Election Day to recast their ballot?"

Yes, you can. If you've voted by absentee ballot and decide you want to change your vote, you can do so by showing up at your polling place on Election Day. When you show up and they check your name on the roll, they'll see you've voted by absentee ballot and will essentially void your absentee ballot and you can then vote at the poll on Election Day.
