Using your mail-in ballot

If you requested a ballot, please vote as soon as possible using that ballot. Postage is prepaid, so you can return it by mail, or you can deposit it to any election drop box.   Do not wait until Election Day.

If you change your mind and decide to vote in person during Early Voting or on Election Day, you will need to vote a provisional ballot.  Provisional ballots will not be counted until after Election Day, after we make sure you did not already vote.
