Absentee Ballot By Mail - Hand Delivery
For the November 3, 2020 general election, the hand-delivery period has been extended. You may deliver your own personal ballot, and not the ballot for another individual to the Elections Department during regular business hours any time after you receive and mark it.
You will be asked to sign a roster to record acceptance of your ballot and you will be asked to present an acceptable form of photo ID. If you do not possess and cannot reasonably obtain an acceptable form of photo ID, you can execute a Reasonable Impediment Declaration and provide a supporting form of identification.
Please note: State law requires that for an application for ballot by mail submitted by telephonic facsimile machine or electronic transmission to be effective, the hard copy of the application also be submitted by mail and be received by the early voting clerk not later than the fourth business day after the transmission by telephonic facsimile machine or electronic transmission is received.
Additionally, Federal Post Card Applications for our Military or Overseas Voters if submitted by facsimile must be followed up with a hard copy mailed FPCA that must be received by the early voting clerk by the fourth business day after the fax. Emailed FPCAs are not affected by this change.
