*Important: If you cast your vote by mail-in ballot, you cannot show up at a polling place to cast your vote. Polling places cannot receive completed mail-in ballot forms.  TO VOTE YOU MUST COMPLETELY BLACKEN THE OVAL TO THE RIGHT OF YOUR CHOICE. An oval darkened to the right of any candidate indicates a vote for that candidate.

If you received a mail-in ballot but you wish to vote in person on November 2nd, then you must bring with you the mail-in ballot and the envelopes it came with to your polling place on Election Day to cast a ballot in person.  If you do not have your mail-in ballot and envelopes with you, you will be able to cast a provisional ballot at your polling place.  Provisional ballots will be counted once it is determined your mail-in ballot was not cast–only one ballot will count per person.

When returning your completed ballot, be sure to place it in the Privacy envelope and seal it. Make no marks on the Privacy envelope. Then place the Privacy envelope into the larger return envelope, seal it and sign it.  If the outer envelope is not signed or the ballot is not sealed in the inner privacy envelope, your ballot will not be counted.

Visit to confirm your mail-in ballot was received by the Bureau of Elections.
