Vote by Mail

Vote by mail or mail-in ballots must be mailed or dropped in a drop box location by 8 PM November 3, 2020. If you mail your ballot, it must be postmarked on or prior to November 3, 2020 to be counted. 

To vote by mail, you must have already requested a ballot. Your request must have been received (not just mailed) by Tuesday, October 20, 2020. Ballots will not be automatically mailed to voters for the November 3, 2020 election.

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 at a Board of Elections drop box.

Do not wait until Election Day. If you do, you must either bring your completed ballot to a drop box or vote using a provisional ballot.  Provisional ballots will not be counted until after Election Day, after we make sure you did not already vote.
