Frequently Asked Questions

The Online Ballot Replacement System is a website that allows voters to electronically submit a request for a replacement ballot.

You must be an active registered voter who was mailed a ballot, but who lost, damaged, spoiled, or did not receive a ballot for this election.

Any approved request received on or before August 7, 2022 will be fulfilled via postal mail delivery. Starting August 8, 2022, voters will have the choice to pick up their replacement ballot in person or have an electronic ballot delivered via email.

Replacement ballot requests will be fulfilled by the following methods for the indicated dates:

Method Available for requests received
Delivery by postal mail on or before August 7, 2022
In-person pickup August 8 to August 11, 2022
Transmitted electronically August 8 to August 13, 2022

Because mail transit times may not guarantee timely receipt of ballots, mail delivery is unavailable starting August 8, 2022.
