Due to COVID-19, the Special Election for Congressional District 25 and Senate District 28 will be primarily vote-by-mail to ensure the safety of every voter.

All voters will be sent a vote-by-mail ballot.


How to Vote by Mail

Your Ballot Comes to You

Under our new system, to protect all voters during the COVID-19 crisis, all registered voters are mailed ballots in the weeks before the election. Just like credit cards, bank statements, and other secure documents, the US postal service delivers these ballots with security and discretion.

How to Fill Out Your Ballot

  • You will be mailed your proper ballot

  • Read the instructions and mark the ballot

  • Put the ballot in the special return envelope and fill in the required information on the envelope

  • You must sign your name on the return envelope or your ballot will not be counted. Your signature must match the signature on your voter registration application form.

Returning Your Ballot

  • Vote-by-mail ballots must be postmarked on or before Election Day 

  • No postage is necessary

  • If you lose your vote-by-mail ballot, you can get another one. Call your County Elections Official for information.
