Ballots must be postmarked by Election Day (Nov. 3rd) in order to be counted. Ballots are not currently available but, starting Aug. 5th, you can request a mail ballot here.
Voting by Mail has become a major topic in light of health concerns surrounding Covid-19. More information about this is coming to our website soon.
