Some counties offer prepaid postage on your ballot envelope, and other counties do not. Refer to the instructions that are included in your ballot.

If your county does not offer prepaid postage and you cannot obtain a stamp, your county may offer drop box locations. To view drop box locations in your county, enter your address at this link. Another option is to place your ballot in the mail without postage, and the Postal Service will still deliver your ballot to your county clerk’s office.
