Drop Boxes / Secure Ballot Intake Stations

Rather than sending your Vote-by-Mail ballot through the mail, you can return it using one of our Secure Ballot Intake Stations (also known as drop boxes). 

  • Drop boxes are available at each Early Voting location during the days and hours of Early Voting.
  • Each box is staffed by election workers to make sure that your ballot is safe. Every day we empty the drop boxes and securely transfer the ballots directly to the Elections Office.

The ballot must be sealed in the special return envelope and signed by the voter. 

Please note that you cannot drop-off your Vote-by-Mail ballot at Election Day polling places. However, the poll workers at your polling place can cancel your Vote-by-Mail ballot. You can then vote in-person.

Where are Drop Boxes Located?

Drop boxes are located outside each Early Voting site during the days and hours of Early Voting. You can view the locations, dates, and times on our Early Voting page.

You can also drop off a Vote-by-Mail ballot at the Elections Center at 2990-1 Apalachee Parkway from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday, with hours extended from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day.
