FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – Time is running out if you plan to return your “Vote-by-Mail” through the mail.

Some voters who plan to vote this way feel a last-minute crush of people mailing in ballots may swamp the post office and their’s may get lost in the shuffle or not delivered on time.

Vote-by-mail ballots must be received by your county Supervisor of Elections by 7 p.m. on Election Day for them to be counted.

If you plan to drop it in the mail, it’s better to do so in the next day or two, giving it plenty of time to get to your county’s Supervisor of Elections office.
