You have two options to return your absentee ballot: 1) the mailbox outside of the Village Center (see picture) or 2) in the silver drop box outside of Village Hall. Ballots need to be received by 8 pm today to be counted in this election. Both boxes will be checked regularly. All absentee return envelops must contain the signature and address of a witness under section 4 "Certification of Witness".
