Alright, so you’ve procrastinated. Ballots are due today, and you still have yours. That’s okay, we can walk you through this.

Here’s the tricky part: ballots must be postmarked by today. That doesn’t mean they’re in your mailbox at 5pm. That means the post office has received your ballot. So here are your safest options:

  1. Go find your nearest post office and deliver it there. They mostly close by 5pm, so watch the time; or
  2. Go find the nearest ballot drop box or van and drop off your ballot by 8pm. It’s free and you get an extra three hours.

Don’t have yours? It’s cool. You still have an option: print it out.

If you still aren’t sure how to vote, fear not, our cheat sheet is below:
