    I’d appreciate if the County Election Board would clarify if we may drop off our absentee ballots into the boxes by the Courthouse where I drop my property tax payments. I would feel more comfortable avoiding the Post Office and just returning my ballot outside the Courthouse.

    If we cannot leave our absentee ballots in the current boxes, might the Board provide temporary boxes dedicated to those ballots? Thanks.
