Notice to voters using US mail service

  • the USPS delivery standards changed so First Class delivery went from 1-3 days to 2-5 days and Standard delivery is now 2-9 days.
  • Please keep this in mind, as the ballot must be received by your local general registrar no later than 12:00 PM on the third day following Election Day. Having the ballot postmarked by the deadline does not count if the ballot is still received after the deadline.
