What if I want to skip a contest?

Then you may do so. It is your decision and right to choose not to vote in any race. Just use the wheel to scroll past the race you want to skip. After you have voted in the last contest on the ballot, a ballot summary screen will appear listing all the choices you have made and will let you know if you missed voting in any race. You will see a list of the votes you have cast, and any skipped races will be noted with No Selection highlighted in red. You can either go back and vote in the skipped race, or press the cast ballot button to submit your ballot with no votes for the races in which you intend no vote.
