Vote by Mail Updates

Mail in Early!

The post office is recommending earlier 'mailing' dates deadlines than are posted on official sites if voters are using USPS.

Example:
Mail in ballot by October 19, 2020 if using USPS instead of the October 27, 2020 deadline posted on votespa.com.

Deadline Extended & Drop Boxes Allowed

Mail-in ballots will be accepted if they are received by 5 p.m. on the Friday after the election and were either postmarked by Nov. 3 or there is no evidence to suggest they were sent after Election Day. Previously, mail-in ballots had to be received by 8 p.m. on Election Day.

Counties may use drop boxes for voters casting mail-in ballots.
