Voters have three options for returning their ballots - by mail, via ballot drop box, or at an in-person voting location.

Postage is paid. Return your ballot before Saturday, March 2 to make sure your vote is counted in the early returns released on Election Night after the polls close at 8PM.
Ballot Drop Box
Your ballot will arrive at the Elections Office sooner if you drop it in one of the 24 hour drop boxes located across the county. Locations:

Voting In-Person
Any voter can go to any voting location. Services will include:
  • Obtaining a replacement ballot - you do not need to bring in the ballot we mailed you. We can void the previously issued ballot when you come in to vote.
  • Voting and turning in the ballot mailed to you
  • Using a tablet to vote on an accessible ballot or a ballot in Spanish
  • Registering and voting on the same day.

Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm
