Here’s how:

Replacement ballots are a normal part of the Vote by Mail process. Voters may receive additional ballots if they re-register, update their voter registration, or request a replacement from our office. Only the first ballot our office receives will be counted, ensuring NO ONE can vote twice.

If you would like your replacement ballot sent to you by mail, your request must be received by our office no later than a week before Election Day to allow for sufficient mailing time.

During an election, voters may submit a request to pick up a replacement ballot before they visit a vote center. A voter may request a ballot online or by calling our office a day before they want to pick up. The goal of this service is to reduce voting lines by offering an opportunity to pick up a mail ballot before Election Day.

Requests received before noon may be fulfilled the same day. Most requests will take 24 hours to process for collection. Once your request has been prepared, you will receive detailed instructions on how you collect your replacement ballot.
