Verification of Post Office Commitment to Ballot Delivery
Limited Contact Voting:
| || At your assigned poll place, all voters can request to vote "Curb-Side" from the comfort of your vehicle. Look for the blue cone outside of your polling place, and call the number listed on the cone. Pollworkers will come out to your car with your ballot and will securely deposit it for you. |
| ||This same curb-side option is available if you want to drop off your vote by mail ballot. It may be preferable for you to remain in your vehicle and we support that option. |
| ||Traditional poll place voting will be available in November. Your assigned location will be provided in the mail towards the end of September. Depending on health issues, the number of locations may need to be reduced in November, which may cause for additional time to vote. |
