Vote-by-Mail in Lee County is safe and easy!

What is Vote-by-Mail?

Vote-by-Mail refers to voting the ballot received in your mail, instead of going to the polls to vote.
It is the same as the ballot used in polling places.
You complete your ballot, fold it and place it in the green security sleeve. Then seal it in the yellow return envelope, sign the back of the envelope, and return it postage paid by Lee County via U.S. Mail or deliver it to a secure drop-off location near you.
