The ballot itself must be returned to the district clerk no later than 5pm on the day of the vote.
A military voter may elect to receive their absentee ballot application and absentee ballot by mail, email or fax. The military voter must, however, return their original military ballot application and military ballot by mail or in person, regardless of how the absentee application or ballot was received. The District Clerk will send the ballot no later than April 21, 2023. The District Clerk must then receive the military voter’s military ballot no later than 5pm on the day of the vote.
