Does my Absentee ballot really count?

Absolutely! Every valid absentee ballot is counted. Be sure to sign the envelope when you return your absentee ballot. The Elections Office must receive your ballot no later than 7:00 PM on Election Day. If you are not sure if your ballot will arrive in time, drop it off in person. All Absentee ballots are counted on Election Night along with all of the votes cast in person during Early Voting and at the polls. Unofficial Results are released before the staff can leave on Election Night. Military and Overseas Citizens' ballots that are received Wednesday through Friday, and were postmarked by Election Day, are added on Friday. The results become Official after they are certified.
