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 end of September. 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 Bob Jackson. 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 or in any of the 11 Secure Ballot Drop Boxes located around the county. (Scroll down to view Secure Ballot Drop Box Locations). You do not need a stamp, as postage is included. Your ballot must be dropped off or post marked by November 3rd.

5 Steps to Vote by Mail
