Ballot Return Options

Here are your in-person ballot return options for the 2022 General Elections.

All states allow postal return and commercial courier delivery, but if you can drop your ballot off in person at your Local Election Office or Dropbox Location - that is a good option, too!

For election office addresses and contact details, check the Election Official Directory. For Drop Box location listings, check the State Voting Requirements / State Lookup Tools section for your state.
