  • If there are multiple pages, ensure to include all pages that have been voted.
  • Seal the ballot in the Official Ballot (white) envelope.
  • Place that envelope inside the Oath of Elector (yellow or yellow striped) preaddressed, postage paid envelope.
  • Seal the Oath of Elector (yellow or yellow striped) envelope.
  • Complete and sign the oath.
  • Mail or personally deliver the ballot the Elections Office or designated Advance Voting and/or drop box locations during hours of operation. Please note that Advance Voting and or drop box locations may change from election to election.

*No ballot drop box at the Fairgrounds

It’s important to vote in the mid term election and vote ALL THE WAY DOWN THE BALLOT.  The local elections are just as important as Governor and Lt. Governor.
