Residents Reminded About New Absentee Voter Ballot Receptacle

The receptacle provides residents with a convenient, new way to drop off voter registration applications, absentee voter ballot applications and absentee voter ballots without having to exit their cars. The receptacle is checked several times a day and it is locked.
