BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — If you received a ballot in the mail, Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Wendy Sartory-Link says you should return it, in person, this weekend.

“For those voting by mail, our office is now encouraging voters to drop off their ballot in-person right away to one of the 21 Early Voting locations through November 6th or at one of our four offices or a secure ballot intake station located outside our offices by Tuesday, Nov. 8th,” said Link in an emailed statement. “Returning your ballot right away and not waiting until Election Day will ensure we have time to contact you if there are signature issues.”

Nearly 90,000 voters had voted early as of mid-day Thursday and roughly 200,000 mail-in ballots had been returned. Despite their name, mail-in ballots may be returned — in person — to any of the early voting locations in Palm Beach County. BocaNewsNow.com published a list of these locations several days ago. Visit that list here. We note that it does not matter where in the county you live — you may utilize any of the early voting stations.

As of Thursday afternoon, here is the breakdown of Palm Beach County registered voters: 398,683 are registered as Democrats; 291,551 are registered as Republicans; 315,331 are registered as “other,” with a total of 1,005,564 registered voters in PBC.

Election Day is Tuesday, November 8th. Public schools are closed as many are used as polling places. Voting locations will be open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. and you WILL need a photo I.D.
