Rather than sending your Leon County Vote-by-Mail ballot through the mail, you can return it using one of our drop boxes (also known as secure ballot intake stations).Drop boxes are available at each Early Voting location during the days and hours of Early Voting. Each drop 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 Center, so you do not need to use a stamp. However, your ballot must be in the green return envelope. Make sure to sign the envelope.
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.
Please note that you cannot use the Leon County drop boxes for ballots from another election office. These ballots must be returned directly to the election office that originally sent them out.
Where are Drop Boxes Located?
Drop boxes are located outside each Early Voting site during voting hours. You can view the locations, dates, and times on our Early Voting Schedule page.
You can also drop off a Vote-by-Mail ballot at the Elections Center during regular office hours, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., with extended hours on Election Day.
