The calls and texts will be gentle reminders to return their ballots in a timely manner to ensure every possible vote can and will be counted. Chief Deputy Supervisor of Elections, Mary Hall stated “We are mindful that over 4,000 votes did not count in the 2018 General Election because they were returned after the Election Day deadline or were unsigned. We are calling and texting voters who requested Vote-By-Mail ballots for the March 12 Municipal Elections to encourage them to return their signed ballots quickly so that every eligible vote can be counted.” Calls are scheduled to be sent to landlines at 10:00 a.m. and texts will be sent to cell phones at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, February 15, 2019.
