Election Day is on November 8th!

By October 26, 2016July 16th, 2018No Comments

Election Day is on Tuesday, November 8th. If you are registered to vote, you should have received your ballots by now. If you haven’t, contact your county’s election office ASAP!

Now’s the time to find your closest drop box (see below!), get a new ballot if yours never showed up, and check your registration status. You can find a Voters’ Guide outlining your local county measures and bios for statewide, legislative, and federal candidates here. You can also read up on how your members of congress scored on the Food Policy Action Scorecard!

There are two ways to return your ballots: by mail or by drop box. Ballots being returned in the mail require postage. Most ballots require two stamps this year due to the large number of candidates and initiatives. Ballots must be post-marked on Election Day or in a drop box by 8pm on Election Day. 

Interested in dropping your ballot off in a local drop box? Find your local ballot drop box here: 

All ballot drop boxes are open 24/7 and don’t require postage. Ballots must be in a drop box by 8 p.m. on Election Day.

Haven’t registered to vote yet? You still can in-person at your local election office until October 31st!
