Ballots by Mail

Recent changes in legislation mandate that all elections be conducted using ballots by mail.   Using a Ballot received by mail means that you receive your official ballot in the mail, cast your votes in the privacy of your own home and return the ballot by mail or in person before the deadline. Since you do not have to go to a polling place to vote, using a Mail-In Ballot really is the easiest way to vote!

All ballots are delivered to voters by mail and there is no longer a need to specifically request one.  You may use the menu on the left to verify or update your voter registration options.

Return Postage

The return postage required for a ballot differs by the size of the ballot.

Ballot Receipt Deadline

Ballots must be received by 7:00 p.m. Election Day; Postmarks do not count as the received date. It must be in a designated ballot box or in line to be placed in a designated ballot box no later than the close of polls on Election Day.

The Process for a Ballot by Mail

Below is a depiction of how a ballot delivered to voters by mail is processed. Once a ballot is placed in a drop-off box at one of our Drop-off locations, it takes approximately two business days for that ballot to be processed and show as received in our database.
