Vote by Mail ballots are available for any registered voter for any elections. For the 2020 General Election, all active, registered voters will automatically receive a vote-by-mail ballot. Ballots will be mailed by Monday, October 5th.
Voters will be able to return ballots by mail, using a ballot drop box, in-person at their County Board of Elections, or at their polling place on Election Day. All ballots returned through the mail must be postmarked by November 3rd and received no later than 8 pm, November 10th.
