Once requested, voters can track their Vote-by-Mail Ballot using BallotTrax. This free service provides notifications to voters on the status of their ballot via text, phone, and email.

• Deadline to return a Vote-by-Mail Ballot: 7 p.m., Election Day, Tuesday, March 19.

A voter may also drop off their Vote-by-Mail Ballot at an authorized Secure Ballot Intake Station, located at every Early Voting site, during Early Voting, from Saturday, March 9, through Saturday, March 16, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., daily.
