The RAVBM system works by sending an email
with a link to the email address provided by the voter.
The voter can then download the ballot, mark their
selections, print their ballot and mail it to the Registrar’s
office to be counted. Unlike your preprinted mail ballot which
will arrive with your return envelope, the process to cast your
RAVBM ballot requires the use of a printer and must be mailed,
using your own envelope and the mail template provided in your
RAVBM instructions, to the Registrar’s office or dropped off at
any official ballot drop box location.
