LOS ANGELES – The United States Postal Service is advising local jurisdictions that their voters should send in mail-in ballots no later than 15 days before Election Day.
“We recommend that jurisdictions immediately communicate and advise voters to request ballots at the earliest point allowable but no later than 15 days prior to election date,” USPS told FOX via email. “The Postal Service also recommends that voters contact local election officials for information about deadlines.”
Vote.org, a non-profit voting registration organization, details absentee ballot application deadlines and voter absentee ballot deadlines for each state.
“Voters must use First-Class Mail or an expedited level of service to return their completed ballots,“ USPS said. “Customers who opt to vote through the U.S. Mail must understand their local jurisdiction’s requirements for timely submission of absentee ballots, including postmarking requirements.”
