Follow all instructions and be sure to sign where indicated, and remember to place your ballot in the secrecy envelope before placing it in its return envelope, or else your ballot may not be counted.

Mail or hand-deliver your completed mail-in ballot to a dropbox in your county or your county election office as soon as possible.

Ballots must be postmarked by 8pm on November 3rd and received by 5pm November 6th, but don’t wait: USPS recommends mailing your ballot by October 27.

If you are a first time voter who registered by mail or online, follow all directions carefully. You may need to include a copy of an ID with your ballot.

You may be able to request, receive, fill out, and submit a mail-in ballot in person from September 14 to October 27.
