Election News: Ballots will be sent out to all active registered electors the week of October 15th – 19, 2018 for the 2018 General Election.

Tips for Mail Ballots:

  • You will receive a ballot, secrecy sleeve, and a return envelope.
  • Select candidates and questions you wish to vote on.
  • Use a Black pen that will not bleed through the paper to vote your ballot.
  • Completely fill in the box next to the selection you want to vote for.
  • If you don’t want to vote the entire ballot, you can leave the rest blank.
  • After marking your ballot, place it inside the secrecy sleeve and place them both inside the return envelope that is addressed to the Prowers County Clerk and Recorder, 301 S. Main Street, Ste. 210, Lamar.
  • Make very sure before mailing or delivering your voted ballot that you have signed the signature affidavit spot on the back side of your return envelope. This is required in order for your ballot to be processed. We must compare every signature to make sure that the intended voter was the one who signed the envelope.
  • You may either deliver or mail your ballot to the Prowers County Clerk and Recorder’s Office. If you mail your ballot, correct postage is required for delivery. Ballots must be received by 7:00 p.m., Election Night (November 6, 2018) in order to be counted. Postmark dates do not count as received.
