Can I vote-by-mail in my state?


Yes, Washington, DC will automatically mail a ballot to every registered voter. Click here to register as a new voter or to check your existing registration. (It's always a good idea to double-check.) https://dcboe.org/Voters/Register-To-Vote/Check-Voter-Registration-Status New voters must register by October 13, 2020.




I have a question that wasn't answered here.


Please call the election office where you live. They are in charge of elections and should be able to help you. 1015 Half St SE Suite, 750 www.dcboe.org (202) 727-2525 TTY 711





Step 2: Vote-by-Mail

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


Technically, ballots must be received by 8pm Election Day, or postmarked on or before Election Day and received no later than 7 days after 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. You may also drop your ballot at your local election office. It's a good idea to call and check first. 1015 Half St SE Suite, 750 (202) 727-2525 TTY 711




Does it require a stamp? Two?


Read the outside of the envelope to see if additional postage may be required. 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/

Call your local election office to find out. (202) 727-2525 TTY 711
