A handwritten note on any piece of paper is fine. It should be clear which election you want a ballot for and where the ballot should be mailed. All notes and applications must be signed. For a primary election, you must specify which party ballot you want if you are registered as an unenrolled voter.
Notes and applications can be placed in a ballot drop box, dropped off in person in the City Clerk’s Office, mailed, or you can email a scan or photo of the application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
