AV Ballots must be delivered to the Clerk's office - they will not be accepted at the polling locations. We have two 24-hour drop boxes available at the Public Safety Building (8350 Main St.) for AV Ballots – one outside along the entryway sidewalk, and one inside the office vestibule (first set of doors on the left-hand wall).  Both drop boxes are under video surveillance.

Any AV ballots received after 8:00PM on Tuesday, May 2, 2023, are not able to be tallied.  We are not responsible for delays in mail service, and CANNOT accept post marks.
