The Vote-by-Mail Process

First you’ll receive a special election mail envelope from your mail carrier. Keep an eye out for these the end of September and in the first few weeks of October and do not mistake it for junk mail! Vote-by-Mail Ballots will begin to be mailed out the week of September 20th. You will have at least three important things in that envelope. First, your mail-in ballot. Second, your yellow certification envelope and Third your outer return envelope.

 

So the first step is to make sure you have these three things ready and a black or blue pen to fill out your ballot.

 

Step two is to fill out your ballot and make sure to vote for the Column 1 Democratic Team. Make sure to mark your ballot clearly with the candidates of your choice by fully filling the bubble next to the candidate’s name with your blue or black pen.

 

Your next step is to complete the certification on the envelope flap. You must print your name and address, and then sign your signature on the flap. This is a critical step and required in order for your vote to be counted. 

 

The final step is to mail your ballot. First, insert your completed ballot inside the yellow ballot certification envelope. Make sure that the flap on the certification envelope is filled out completely and signed, and then seal this envelope. Make sure you do not rip off the flap. Then insert your yellow ballot certification envelope inside of the outer return envelope to be mailed back. Seal the outer envelope and complete the return address portion. Then, you can return your ballot by leaving it in your mailbox or bring it to your local post office. You may also drop off your ballot to the Board of Elections, in any of the 11 Secure Ballot Drop Boxes located around the county. (Scroll down to view Secure Ballot Drop Box Locations), or bring your Ballot to your polling place (scroll down for locations) on Election Day by 8:00 PM. You do not need a stamp, as postage is included. Your ballot must be dropped off or post marked by 8:00 PM November 3rd.

5 Steps to Vote by Mail

1. Open official ballot envelope from your County Clerk

2. Find Column 1 on the ballot.

3. Vote the Column 1 Democratic candidates by filling in the bubble next to their names with a blue or black pen.

4. Fold your ballot and put it into the yellow certification envelope.  Complete your name, 

    address and town on the flap in print.  Sign on the signature line using your signature.

5. Put your ballot in the mail, no postage needed, or drop off your ballot at the Board of 

    Elections, in one of the 11 Secure Ballot Drop Boxes located around the county, or bring it      to your polling place by 8:00 PM November 3rd. The earlier you mail or drop off your            ballot, the better.
