Vote By Mail: Keep Your Options Open
We are all hearing questions and concerns about Vote by Mail and the US Post Office. People are wondering if Vote by Mail is really the right way to go. Here is what we would say today: Apply for Vote by Mail. Then you have options depending on USPS and Covid19.
- Option 1 – You get your ballot close to 1 October. Depending on what we can discover about delays at USPS, drop it in the mail before Oct. 15th.
- Option 2 – We find out that USPS has stopped working as a reliable delivery option. Or it is getting past Oct. 15. Take your ballot to a drop box. Click here to see a list of drop-off locations and when they’ll be open.
- Option 3 – Option 1 and 2 do not work for you. Take your VBM ballot to the poll on election day. The VBM ballot will be voided and you will be given a regular ballot to vote in person.
If you do not apply to Vote by Mail, you have only one option: go to your poll on election day. We like to have options. Not voting is not an option.
