Make sure your absentee ballot is counted!
To date, 157,687 absentee ballots have been issued (including early voting) with 124,614 returned.
As Election Day draws near, Common Council President Cavalier Johnson is asking all residents who have not yet cast their ballot to have a plan to vote, and particularly those individuals who requested an absentee ballot by mail and have not yet returned it.
“We are less than one week away from Election Day, and those who have not yet returned their absentee ballot via mail should take the proper steps to ensure that their vote is counted,” said President Johnson. “There are 15 secure drop boxes stationed throughout the city, and this close to the election submitting your ballot via drop box is the best way to make sure it is received.”
Voters can return their absentee ballots to the drop boxes until 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 3. This allows for the ballots to be delivered for counting by 8 p.m. as required under state law. The drop box locations are as follows:
- Atkinson Library, 1960 W Atkinson Ave.
