Can I vote-by-mail in my state?

Step 2: Vote-by-Mail

When do I have to mail or drop off my completed ballot?


Technically, ballots must be received by 7pm on Election Day. To avoid delays within the election office and the postal service, we recommend you return your voted ballot as soon as it arrives and no later than the middle of October.




Does it require a stamp? Two?


It depends on the jurisdiction. Some voters receive postage-paid envelopes for returning their ballots. Some jurisdictions get around the stamp issue by providing drop-off/return boxes. The US Postal service will deliver any ballot, regardless of whether or not it has the correct postage, or any at all. They will charge the local election office for any unpaid postage. https://time.com/4547550/absentee-mail-ballot-postage-stamp-postal-service-usps/
