A Ballot drop box is another way to securely return your mail ballot, without the cost of postage.

Drop boxes will be open to accept ballots 18 days prior to and including Election Day. They will be open 24 hours each day and will close at 8 pm on Election Day.
Carefully follow the instructions on the ballot envelope. Place the ballot in the secrecy sleeve, sign the outer envelope, seal all envelopes, and deposit your ballot into the box.
Ballots are collected from each drop box regularly by Franklin County Elections. Two official election workers will use a chain of custody process to transport all ballots.
Ballots are delivered to the Election Center where they are processed with other returned mail ballots. The signature on every ballot is checked against the voter's registration file and if it matches, the ballot moves forward.
