Example of how to fill out the ballot certification

Ballot Certification Example

Once you have filled in your ballot and your certification you will put your folded ballot into the secrecy envelope and seal. No need for postage on this envelope. Then place your secrecy envelope and your ballot certification in the larger envelope and seal. You can drop this off in the ballot retrieval box on the west side of the courthouse (no postage needed) or you can drop it off at the post office (postage is needed for this method of return.)
