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!
Request a Ballot
All ballots are delivered to voters by mail and there is no longer a need to specifically request a ballot by mail. To register to vote, refer to the Voter Registration Information page.
The return postage required for a ballot differs by the size of the ballot. For the 2013 Coordinated Election, required postage is one first-class stamp.
Ballots must be received by 7:00 p.m. Election Day; Postmarks do not count as receive date.
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.
