This is the Presidential Election as well as State Officers and Local Justices of the Peace for Jericho. The ballot is legal size and two sided. The local Justice of the Peace race is on the back of the ballot and specific to Jericho. Every active voter will be mailed a November 3rd ballot between September 21 and October 1.

The ballot will come with a certificate envelope and a postage paid return envelope. The early/absentee ballot that is received in the mail is exactly the same as the ballot that will be at the polling place November 3rd. The only difference is the mailed ballot is scored for easy folding. Ballots can be returned by mail but you are not required to mail it. The ballots can be placed in the secure drop box to the left of the Town Hall front steps 24/7. Ballots must be received back by 7pm on Tuesday November 3rd in order to count. It is very important that you follow directions and put the voted ballot in the certificate envelope and sign the outside of the certificate envelope. If your signature in not on the certificate envelope with your voted ballot inside, then the ballot will be defective and not count. There are 7 reasons that a ballot can be deemed defective.
If you wish to return your ballot at the polls there will be an outside drop box that is monitored by an election official to return completed ballots. If you wish to go inside the building and vote, you will need to sign an affidavit that you are not using the ballot that was mailed to you and then go through voting process. Voter traffic inside the polling place will be in a one way direction. Please be aware that safety precautions will be in place and patience with the process is appreciated.
