 October 2020 - United States Postal Service recommends the following- If you plan to vote by mail be sure to read this statement, vote as early as you can, and contact your local election officials to make sure your vote is counted! The Postal Service recommends that voters mail their ballots before Election Day and at least one week prior to their state deadline. It's also recommended that overseas voters return their ballots using a level of service that, based on the information available, should result in the ballot being received by the applicable state deadline. We strongly advise election officials to factor into their planned mailings the time it will take to both send and receive Election Mail based on the Postal Service's delivery standards.
