Good advice for people who are registered to vote but feel unsafe about voting in person and may be uncertain that the USPS will deliver your “mail-in” ballot to be counted in a timely fashion.
- If you have not already, request an absentee/mail-in ballot immediately. Ballots will be mailed Oct. 7, 2020.If voting in person is your preference, find out your polling place here
- Complete the ballot and mail it back as soon as possible OR put it in a ballot drop box. Do not mail back your ballot after October 31 if you want it to be counted. Use a ballot drop box instead.
- Vote early or drop your ballot at these early voting sites as soon as they are open.Here is what you’re accomplishing by doing this:
- You’re not just relying on the USPS to get your ballot in on time, so no matter what, your ballot gets in on time.
- You don’t have to worry about standing in long lines and risking infection. You’re just stopping by to drop it off.
- You voted! Congratulations!
Update: in Arizona you are not allowed to deliver a ballot unless it is yours or a family member’s.
- Ask anyone you know who is healthy and willing, to volunteer to be a poll worker. This will maximize in-person voting options.
If you need to register to vote in this Nov. 3, 2020 election you must do so by October 5, 2020. Do that here.
