Mail-in absentee voting: After you have filled out the ballot and placed it in the return envelope, be sure to fill out the 3 yellow-highlighted areas on the envelope: 1. Sign your name, write in the date. 2. A witness (adult US citizen) must sign. 3. The witness must write in her/his address.
NOTE: If any of this information is missing the ballot will be rejected and your vote will not count. This is the main reason ballots have been rejected in the past.
The clerk must receive the ballot by 8 pm on Election Day, November 3. Late ballots will be rejected and your vote will not count.
You have several options to return your ballot: 1. MAIL IT at the post office. The USPS suggests mailing it at least 7 days before the election. Avoid potential postal delays. Mail it early! 2. DROP IT in a ballot drop box near your city / village hall. (See below) 3. RETURN IT in person to the clerk’s office before Election Day. 4. TAKE IT to your polling place on Election Day.
