If you haven’t mailed in or dropped off your ballot yet, here’s what you need to know about Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 5.
If you return your ballot by mail, first-class postage is required and ballots must be postmarked by Election Day. No postage is required if you deposit your ballot in a drop box, which will collect ballots until 8 p.m. Tuesday.
