Mail in Ballots Must be Postmarked Today

Today, Monday, November 7th, is the last day mail in ballots can be postmarked in order to count in Tuesday’s election. Rural areas of the state need to consider carefully their best course of action if they have waited until today to put their ballot in the mail. During last election, some rural areas of the state had ballots not postmarked until the day after they were dropped into the rural mail drop box. Some rural locations only postmark mail once a day and any mail that arrived after that was postmarked the following day and no longer qualified in the vote count. It is recommended if voters have any doubt, they should hand deliver their ballot to the County Clerk’s office. Ballots can be hand delivered to the County Clerk’s office through election day, Tuesday, November 8th.
