Every valid mail ballot is counted. To be sure your ballot is valid, follow the instructions on the mail ballot envelope. This includes making sure your ballot is signed when it is returned.
For your ballot to count, you must return your ballot no later than 7:00 p.m. on Election Day (or later, if you are a military or overseas voter). If you are unsure whether your ballot will arrive through the mail on time, drop it off in person at either a drop-box or a designated drop-off location. There are drop-box and drop-off sites located throughout your county. Dropbox locations are open 24 hours per day. If you have trouble finding a drop-box or drop-off location, contact your county clerk and recorder. Instructions will be provided by your county clerk with your mail ballot.
