If you are planning to Vote-by-Mail in the 2022 General Election, here is what you need to know to make your vote count:
Requesting Your Mail Ballot
You may request a Vote-by-Mail ballot online at VotePalmBeach.gov, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling (561) 656-6208. Please have your Driver License, Florida ID card, or the last four digits of your Social Security number available when making your request.
The deadline to request that a Vote-by-Mail ballot be mailed to you is 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 29, 2022. Our Main Elections Office will be open that Saturday to serve you. A mail ballot may also be picked up in person at one of our four offices until 5:00 p.m. on Monday, November 7, 2022. Under emergency circumstances, your ballot may be picked up in person on Election Day.
Returning Your Mail Ballot
You can mail your Vote-by-Mail ballot using pre-paid postage, or drop it off inside any of our four offices during business hours. You may also drop it off at designated drop off locations across the county starting October 24, 2022. See map below for Vote-by-Mail ballot drop off times and locations!
All Vote-by-Mail ballots must be received by 5:00 p.m. at one of our branch offices, or by 7:00 p.m. at our Main Office on Election Day, Tuesday, November 8, 2022, in order to be counted.
Your PBC Elections Office encourages all voters to sign-up for Informed Delivery with the U.S. Postal Service. Informed Delivery is a secure, FREE feature that provides eligible residential consumers with a digital preview of their incoming mail and packages.
You can conveniently view what’s arriving in your mailbox via email notifications, an online dashboard, or mobile app. As a voter, you will have a more convenient and secure “vote at home” experience, because you will be able to see when your Election Mail will arrive. Learn more about Informed Delivery and sign up at www.usps.com.
