Election Risk Update: Number of Mail-In Ballots Rejected Is Likely To Increase This Year
Return your mail-in ballots as early as possible.
The number of mail-in ballots rejected because they arrive after the receipt deadline or because they are missing a witness signature is likely to increase this year with the significant increase in mail-in voting. In response, many states have extended mail ballot receipt deadlines beyond election day, and offer ballot curing to fix issues like missing witness signatures.
It is vital to return your mail-in ballots as early as possible to ensure it reaches election offices by the receipt deadline, and to allow election officials time to cure any issues on the ballot.
