Drop Boxes

Don't want to mail your ballot? Use our drop boxes! Safe. Secure. Monitored.

Drop boxes will be available for the 2023 Consolidated Election and provides another secure way to submit your ballot in lieu of mailing, early voting, or voting on Election Day. Each drop box is in a secure location and is monitored by Democratic and Republican election judges. Ballots will be picked up daily by Democratic and Republican election judges and delivered to the Government Center. Drop boxes are locked and covered overnight and opened early the following morning. No ballots remain in drop boxes overnight.
