Get Your Mail Ballot IN

[Secretary of State Gorbea now urges use of drop boxes for mail ballots. All drop boxes are under 24-hour surveillance.]

Your ballot must be received no later than 8pm on Election Day to be counted. If you want to ensure that your ballot is received before the deadline, you may return your ballot by depositing it in one of the drop boxes located across the state. Common Cause RI urges all those who have yet to mail in their ballots:

If you received your mail ballot but did not return it yet, be sure to cast your vote and return the ballot  as soon as possible. Your ballot must be RECEIVED (not postmarked) no later than 8:00 PM on Election Day to be counted.

You can drop your ballot in any drop box in the state, regardless of where you are registered to vote. Go here to find your nearest drop box.

It looks like we are doing pretty well on this actually. (Have you ever seen people this motivated?) Katherine Gregg reports in the ProJo:

As of Monday, he said, 126,351 out of the 175,475 mail ballots sent to voters who requested them for the Nov. 3 election have already been cast.

Put another way: a week out from the election, there are 48,944 ballots outstanding, which will count as long as they are received, or deposited in locked drop boxes, by 8 p.m. on election night.

Keep it up.
