NOTE: Your ballot cannot be dropped off at either a polling place or the election office. It must be mailed (or Fed-X, or UPS) and it must be received at the election office no later than the close of polls on election day.
In order to ensure that your mail in vote is received and counted, we recommend you mail it two weeks prior to the election (Tuesday, October 20).
