So far, the board has mailed out some 400,000 ballots, according to election officials. The board also sent 600,000 mail-in ballot request forms to newly registered voters, which could begin arriving this week.

Voters wishing to vote by mail must be registered by June 28 and submit a request to the state board or their local board by July 12.

Ballots for the primary election must be postmarked by no later than Election Day — July 19. They can be sent by mail or dropped off in the ballot boxes, a list of which can be found on the State Board of Elections website.

Voters who haven’t requested to vote by mail can vote early at a center in their county from July 7 to July 14 between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m., or at their polling place on Election Day.

Voters who requested a mail-in ballot but have changed their mind and attempt to vote in-person will be asked to submit a provisional ballot to be reviewed.
