Vote, Vote, VOTE by Mail - Don't Delay!

Body

Issue: In a pandemic, the best way to make sure your vote is counted is to Vote By Mail (VBM).

Trump is falsely claiming voting by mail creates fraud, which has been widely disproved. 

Now the Trump toady running the United States Post Office is implementing policies that deliberately slow down mail delivery.  See the related Call To Action by going here.

TO AVOID MAIL DELAYS YOU MUST RETURN YOUR VBM BALLOT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE FOR THE 8/18 PRIMARY AND THE 11/3 GENERAL ELECTION.

YOU CAN ALSO DROP OFF YOUR VBM BALLOT AND AVOID THE MAIL.

VBM ballots must be returned to the Supervisor of Elections no later than 7 p.m. on Election Day.  If you didn’t request a VBM ballot, there is still time to vote by mail, although the deadline to get a ballot mailed to you has passed. 

You can visit one of the Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections offices and they will print a mail ballot for you.

Voters not wanting to put their filled-out ballots back in the mail can drop off their completed ballots at the offices of the Supervisor of Elections or at early voting locations. 

Find the Supervisor’s offices and early voting locations here.

If a mail ballot is not accepted, due to a signature mismatch or other issue, the elections office is required to notify the voter and provide the voter with an opportunity to “cure” the issue so it can be counted. Election officials must try to reach the voter by phone, email, text message and usually by mail to let them know if their ballot was rejected so they can try to cure the issue.

The mail ballot envelope includes a space for voters to put their contact information. A vote-by-mail cure affidavit must be submitted by 5 p.m. two days after the election.

If you get a VBM ballot but choose not to send it to the Supervisor of Elections you can still vote in person at a polling place!
