The challenge is reviewed by the prosecuting attorney’s office to make sure it is complete. You will be notified if it is not.

If the challenge is complete:
  • All information is posted to our website
  • We will notify the challenged voter and others that a challenge has been turned in
  • We will set a time and date for the challenge hearing

It is a meeting to hear the facts about the challenge and make a decision on the voter registration. The challenge hearing is an administrative hearing that is open to the public. It is not a court hearing.
