With more than 25 million ballots expected to be mailed this election season, the Postal Service is encouraging voters to mail ballots early to help make sure they meet delivery deadlines set by election officials.
- Visit state websites to determine election office locations and Vote-by-Mail rules.
- Check with the local election office for rules governing mail ballots.
- Place completed ballots inside their window envelopes correctly.
- Ensure proper postage and stamp placement on the upper right-hand corner of envelope.
