Complete your vote by mail ballot

When you receive your vote by mail kit, it will have:

  • a ballot
  • instructions for how to mark your ballot
  • a ballot secrecy envelope
  • a voter declaration form
  • a yellow return envelope with prepaid postage

To properly cast your ballot by mail, please complete these steps in order:

  1. Mark your ballot by following the enclosed instructions;
  2. Place your ballot in the secrecy envelope and seal it;
  3. Complete and sign your voter declaration form;
  4. Place the secrecy envelope and the voter declaration form in the yellow return envelope and seal it.

If you have more than one person in your household voting by mail, they must each complete their own vote by mail kit. Do not place multiple ballots in one return envelope.

Your vote is secret. It is illegal to take a photo or video of your ballot after you mark it or show it to any person. However, if you aren’t able to fill out the ballot by yourself you may ask someone to help you.

Candidates and their campaign workers are not permitted to help you with completing or delivering your vote by mail ballot.
