HOW TO FILL OUT
YOUR ABSENTEE BALLOT
If you have not already requested an absentee ballot, we recommend you make a plan to vote election day – August 11th. Since the election is just days away, we URGE you to drop your completed ballot off by hand at your county election office or a designated dropbox!
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 (and vote Edward “Ted” Terry for DeKalb County Commissioner, District 6)!
- 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.
