2. Receive your ballot by mail. Once registered, you will automatically receive a ballot packet at least 18 days before each election. If you don't, contact your County Elections Division immediately.

3. Cast your vote in comfort. Following the instructions on your ballot, mark it carefully, and ensure you sign the return envelope as noted. You may choose to return your ballot by mail using the postage-paid return envelope or look for a convenient ballot drop box within your county.

Require an accessible ballot? If you are blind or have low-vision and are unable to read standard print, you may request an accessible electronic ballot by completing a Voter Registration Application or through the online voter registration system.
1. Before voting, review both sides of the ballot. To vote, darken the boxes of your choice with a black or blue pen. If you make an error, contact your County Elections Division for a replacement ballot.

2. After voting, place your ballot in the secrecy sleeve. Then, place the secrecy sleeve in the return envelope.

3. Read the affirmation statement and sign the return envelope. You must sign for your ballot to be counted. After your signature is validated, your ballot will be counted.
By Mail: Place your voted ballot in the mail using the postage-paid return envelope. Be mindful of USPS delivery times to ensure it is received by the deadline.

By Ballot Drop Box: Drop your voted ballot at a ballot drop box location within your county. Locations and hours will be announced closer to the election.
