Mansfield mail ballots to require more postage

Voting ballot graphic

If you are voting by mail in Mansfield this year, you'll need more postage on your ballot before dropping it in the mailbox.

Election administrators say additional postage will be required for any City of Mansfield mail-in ballot since it will be two pages instead of one to accommodate the charter amendments being considered by voters. Because the packet will be heavier, postage will be 70 cents instead of 55 cents. 

You may only vote by mail in Texas if 1) you are age 65 and older; 2) you have a disability; 3) you are expected to be out of the county of your residence or the country; and 4) you are in jail. An application for a ballot by mail is available online at https://www.sos.texas.gov/elections/voter/reqabbm.shtml. Print and complete the form, then mail it to the early voting clerk in the county where you vote.

Some county early voting clerks are even offering an opportunity to email early voting applications to the clerk. Mansfield is located in three counties so residents here will need to contact the election office in the county where they reside.
