In order to have your absentee ballot counted, do the following instead: 

Return your ballot to City Hall yourself by 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 3, OR 


*Have a delivery service deliver it to Election Staff inside City Hall by 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 3.


**Do not return your absentee ballot to your polling place.
