If your mail in ballot has been rejected, it is easy to fix and we can help you do it

If the Supervisor of Elections has told you that your mail-in ballot was rejected either because there is a problem with the signature match or you failed to sign it, you can easily correct the problem by signing and sending a form to the Supervisor of Elections together with a copy of your ID. There is a deadline, so you need to act now.

We can help you fix your ballot or you can do it yourself.
