Once I get my ballot in the mail, what do I do?
Simply fill out your ballot with your selections, place it in the ballot envelope and have the affidavit notarized. The affidavit envelope needs to be placed in the OUTER envelope (also provided by the Election Board) and affixed with proper postage (70 cents or two forever stamps). Simply drop it in the mail in time for the Election Board to receive it no later than 7 p.m. on Election Day (NOT just postmarked by Election Day).
Where can I find a notary?
Notaries can be commonly found at such places as tag agencies, photocopy shops, AAA, real estate firms, tax prep firms, insurance agencies and banks. Notaries cannot charge a fee for notarizing a signature on an absentee ballot.
