Question: Can mail-in ballots be dropped off in person at the county clerk’s office?
Under Texas’ election code, mail-in ballots can be dropped off in person at the county clerk’s office, according to a report by The Texas Tribune.
Voters who chose to hand-deliver their absentee ballot will need to do so on election day and provide a valid form of ID.
Dropping off your ballot is a great way to ensure your vote is counted if you believe that your mail-in ballot will not be received by the deadline.
Mail-in ballots must be postmarked by 7 p.m. on election day and be received by 5 p.m. or sooner the following day.Ak
Harris County voters older than 65 can also bring their mail-in ballots to a polling station on election day.
