Ballot drop boxes:
Subject to change.
Voters can return their ballot to any of the in-person voting locations, or drop it off at one of our 24/7 ballot drop boxes. Most are drive up and a couple are walk up. Boxes will be installed by October 6. Ballot drop boxes are picked up daily by elections officials. Ballot drop boxes are bolted to the ground.
