  • Do I have to return my absentee ballot by mail?

    Nope. You’ve got flexibility and rules vary state by state. You can drop off your ballot at your polling place early, but be sure to check what day your early voting actually starts. Some states have official absentee drop boxes that skip the mailing process altogether and are supervised by cameras or poll workers.
