What to do if you’re mailing your ballot

If you don’t return your ballot by election day, you can still vote. It is not a problem at all. Take your VBM ballot to your polling site. They will destroy that ballot and give you a new one to vote at the polls.

VBM ballots were sent out to voters on September 24th

Properly Fill Out Your Ballot


  • When you get your ballot make sure it is addressed to you. If it is addressed to someone else let your mail carrier and supervisor of elections know immediately.


  • Fill in the oval next to your choice completely with a blue or black pen. Partially filled in ovals could result in your vote not being counted.
  • If you mess up ask for a new ballot, do not cross out or your vote may not be counted.
  • Vote on each race: down-ballot races are more important than ever. Check out our sample ballot with the candidates we are supporting HERE.


  • Place your ballot inside the secrecy folder that was included and place both inside the return envelope and seal it closed.
  • IMPORTANT: Sign the envelope over the seal where the directions direct you to.
  • Your signature must match the signature you have on file with the Supervisor of Elections office.
