For your absentee ballot to be counted, it must be received as follows:
* The U.S. Postage Service estimates that it may take 2-5 days for your voted absentee ballot to be delivered to the board of elections by mail. To make sure your absentee ballot is counted, you have the responsibility for returning your ballot by the deadline.
* Postmarked does not include a date marked by a postage evidence system such as a postage meter.
In the case of a medical emergency, the deadline for absentee ballot requests is 3 p.m. on Election Day. To be eligible under this provision, you must be confined in a hospital because of a medical emergency.
