Vote by Mail (VBM)
Be sure to sign the return envelope. Your signature must appear similar to the original signature on your voter registration form. A Vote-by-Mail ballot without your signature will not be counted. Your Vote-by-Mail ballot can be returned by mail, dropped off at any Vote Center, or deposited in a ballot drop off box. Click here for more on VBM.

VOTE BY MAIL FOR EVERYONE
Every registered voter was mailed a Vote-by-Mail ballot by October 5.
Every registered voter will have the option to vote in-person at a Vote Center. Voters are not required to bring their Vote-by-Mail ballot to vote in-person, but it is strongly encouraged. If a voter would like to vote in-person, but has not received their mailed ballot, they can visit a Vote Center to cast a provisional ballot.
POP-UP VOTE CENTERS
In addition to four established Vote Centers that will host hours on multiple days before Election Day, there will be three pop-up Vote Centers available. These pop-up locations will each be available for one day only on the weekend before Election Day. Click here for a list of pop-up Vote Centers.
