Important Notice to Voters about Early/Absentee Ballots

Notice to Voters:


The City Clerk’s Office received ballots on the evening of Wednesday, October 7, 2020. Since that time we have been working diligently to get the ballots mailed. To date we have received over 7,900 applications for Early and Absentee ballots for the November 3rd election.


The integrity of the election is of utmost importance and the City Clerk’s Office takes its responsibility seriously in checking the applications for accuracy and working with voters to resolve any issues. Rest assured, we are working as quickly as we can to get your ballot to you!  


Some Helpful Tips:

  • Go to to track the status of your application. If your application says “pending” that means we have received and entered your application and are working on getting the ballot mailed to you.
  • Once you receive your ballot, you can return it by mail, in person, or by using the secure drop boxes at the Warren Street entrance to City Hall and the Dale Avenue handicap entrance to City Hall.
  • Make sure that your affidavit envelope is signed! Failure to do so will result in your ballot being rejected.
  • If you are concerned that you won’t receive your ballot in time, remember that you can cancel your application and vote at City Hall during the early voting period or at the polls on Election Day. You will be required to sign an affidavit before proceeding with voting in person. Click here to view the Early Voting schedule at City Hall.
