Authorized Messengers and Bearers
Ballots can be sent to you or picked up by an "Authorized Messenger" (such as a family member; see application for more details) who will then bring it to you. You can also designate a "Bearer" to deliver your completed ballot.
Receive and return the ballot on the same day!
If you apply in person at the County Clerk's office, you can, if you so choose, fill out the ballot and give it right back to the County Clerk, who will make sure it gets to the office of the Superintendent of Elections/Commissioner of Registration and counted accordingly.
Vote by mail OR Provisional ballot
Once you apply for a vote-by-mail (VBM) ballot, you won't be able to vote in person at your polling place. If you are listed as having received a VBM ballot but go to your polling place to vote in person, you will still have the option to submit a provisional ballot, which the poll workers are legally bound to give you on request.
