Instead, take it to your county’s election office or take it with you to your precinct voting site on Tuesday and cast your ballot. Polling sites will not accept vote-by-mail ballots. At the polling site, they will cancel the vote by mail ballot and allow the voter to cast their ballot.
If your voting precinct polling site declines to cancel your absentee ballot for whatever reason, you can request a provisional ballot which will be reviewed and verified by the county canvassing board.
The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
