Officials say many absentee ballots issued have not yet been returned.

Voters who applied for an absentee ballot through the mail should return it to the Municipal Center – Building 14, rather than go to the polls on Election Day with the ballot.

After presenting a photo ID, voters can drop off their own ballot curbside on the Princess Anne Road side of the building on June 22 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on June 23 from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Those who have been issued a ballot through the mail cannot vote that ballot at the polls. If absentee voters go to the polls on Election Day, they will have to go through the process of voiding the ballot, surrendering it, and being issued a new one before voting.
