Where to Drop Off Your Mail-In Ballot

You have to hand-deliver your mail-in ballot now, in order for it to be received by Tuesday. Like many of us, if you work one city and live in another, some of these locations may be more convenient to you.


It's times like this, when it's too late to actually mail your mail-in ballot, that Patch comes to the rescue.

Any polling place on Election Day will take your ballot. In addition to that, before and during the election, look for these ballot drop-off location. Note that unless otherwise noted, many are only available during normal business hours, usually closing by 5 p.m.
