- Vote by mail: If you requested an absentee ballot, you should have received a mail-in ballot from your county. If you haven’t requested your ballot yet, you can request it here.
- If you HAVE NOT received your ballot, call the Voter Protection Hotline (1-888-730-5816), and then plan to vote in-person on election day (Tuesday, January 5th).
- If you HAVE received your absentee ballot, it must be received or delivered to your county election officials by 7 P.M. on Tuesday, January 5th.
- To be clear: that is not a postmark deadline, it is a RECEIPT deadline!
- See the guide below on how to fill out your absentee ballot and how to return it.
HOW TO FILL OUT
YOUR ABSENTEE BALLOT
When you open the ballot you receive by mail, you will find:
- a white sheet of paper to fold around your ballot
- the ballot itself
- and a return envelope.
Next, fill out your ballot completely using a black or blue pen or a pencil.
- Once you are finished filling out your ballot, fold the white sheet of paper around your ballot (you do not need to seal the white paper itself), place the paper and ballot inside the return envelope and seal the envelope, and sign and print your name on the back of the envelope
The most convenient option is to drop it off at one of DeKalb County’s secure drop boxes below.
Last important information — your absentee ballot must be received BY 7 p.m. on election day, so make sure to deliver it in-person ASAP.
