RETURN YOUR ABSENT VOTER BALLOT
AV ballots can be returned by mail, however voters are encouraged to either hand deliver their completed ballot to the Clerk’s Office or utilize the drop box. The drop box, shown below, is built into the wall just outside the entrance doors to the Township Offices in the lower level of the Civic Center. The drop box deposits into a locked closet, so it is a secure option for returning ballots that can be used any day or time.
