Some voters who requested a ballot before Aug. 6 may still receive a ballot application in the mail. This may happen if a voter’s request was not processed before Aug. 6. These voters should go online to verify their application has been processed at THIS SITE. It is not necessary to send in two ballot requests. Ballot applications come with a postage-paid return envelope to make it easy and free for voters to request ballots.
The State Board of Elections also encourages voters to verify the accuracy of their voter registration information at THIS SITE.
The next meeting of the Board is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 4 at 1 pm and can be viewed live HERE.
