Any voter who does not wish to mail their ballot back can have their ballot dropped off at the Lake County Election Office between the hours of 8 am – 5 pm, Monday – Friday. The Election Office will be closed on October 12th due to the Federal holiday and will have extended hours on Election Day, 7 am – 8 pm.
