Municipal races are non-partisan, therefore, all registered voters who live within the participating municipalities’ boundaries may vote in the municipal elections.
Voters that have an existing request for a Vote-by-Mail ballot have already received their vote-by-mail ballot.
Registered voters have until 5:00 pm on Saturday, February 27, 2021, to request that their Vote-by-Mail ballot be mailed to them.
The main elections office, located in West Palm Beach, will be open on Saturday, February 27, 2021, to accept vote-by-mail ballot requests and returned ballots.
“Once you’ve filled out your Vote-by-Mail ballot, simply place it in the return envelope, seal the envelope, sign within the signature box, and place it in your mailbox. It’s that easy,” said Palm Beach County Elections Supervisor, Wendy Sartory Link.
All vote-by-mail return envelopes are postage pre-paid and voters don’t forget to sign your return envelope to ensure that your vote will be counted. Voters will notice additional spaces to include a phone number and email address on the return envelope.
Voters are not required to provide this information, however, but are encouraged to do so. That way they can be reached easily in case there is an issue with their signature.
“Providing our office with this information allows our staff to quickly reach a voter in the event of a signature issue and ensure that Every Vote Counts,” said Supervisor Link.
Voters are reminded that their ballot must be returned to the Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections main office by 7:00 pm on March 9, 2021. The U.S. Postal Service recommends that voters mail their ballot at least seven calendar days before the March 9, 2021 deadline.
Voters who receive a ballot in the mail and decide to vote in person may vote at their precinct’s polling location on Election Day. If they have their vote-by-mail ballot, they may bring it to their polling location so it can be cancelled. They may also vote in person even if they do not have their ballot with them.
