You must be a registered to vote. If you're registered by July 7, 2020 a vote by mail ballot packet will arrive approximately 18 days before the election. If you missed the deadline to vote, you can walk in to a voter service center from July 27th through August 8th to register in person and vote in person. You may return your voted ballot: by mail, or in-person at a designated place of deposit. All ballots must be received by the Clerk’s Office by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day. Postmarks do not count!
