What is the Vote by Mail process and how does it work? View the video to better understand how the process works.
Your vote by mail letter may mention a "certification card". The envelope in which your ballot is placed (called a ballot or certification envelope) acts as the certification. If you are mailing your ballot or delivering it yourself, an no one helped you complete the ballot, you only need to complete the signature and date fields. These fields are displayed in the red box on the ballot envelope sample.
The label on your ballot envelope has the information necessary for the other fields.
GRACE PERIOD REGISTRATION/VOTING
October 7 through November 2
Grace Period Registration/Voting is for those who did not register to vote or submit a change of address before the October 6 Close of Registration. During this time, you may come to the County Clerk’s office and register to vote or change your address. You MUST vote at this time and you must present two forms of ID to register to vote; one of which must indicate your current address. You may register and vote on Election Day at your Polling Place with the proper ID. We do advise you to register before Election Day if possible, due to the potential of long lines at your Polling Place.
