ABSENTEE BALLOTS: I requested my ballot but haven’t received it yet. What should I do?

  1. Make an alternative voting plan — and by that, we mean head to the polls during early voting. You can submit another request but it may cause your first ballot to be cancelled and then it may not arrive in time… Just saying.

That’s it. That’s the list. Go vote early.

You can always submit other issues or questions here and our team will follow up with you.
