  • Go to the Registrar of Voters to sign the mail ballot or provisional ballot return envelope in person, or
  • Complete and return an Unsigned Ballot Statement.

If you received a letter from the Registrar of Voters stating that your mail ballot or provisional ballot return envelope was not signed, go to the Registrar of Voters to sign your envelope, or complete and return an Unsigned Ballot Statement.
