Absentee Voting by Mail or Dropbox

This year, registered voters can vote three ways: By absentee ballot, in-person early voting, or in-person voting on Election Day, November 3, 2020.


All registered voters can request an absentee ballot if they are concerned about COVID-19 for the November 3 election. Signed absentee ballots can be returned to drop boxes without a wait at over 300 locations statewide.


You may return the ballot in any of the following ways:

  1. Put it in the mail ensuring it receives a postmark no later than November 3

  2. Drop it off at an early voting poll site between October 24th and November 1

  3. Drop it off at a poll site on November 3 by 9pm

  4. Drop it off at your County Board of Elections Office starting September 8 until no later than November 3 by 9pm (click to see list of County Board of Elections Offices here)
