        • Applications for absentee ballots
        • Challenges to any person on the list of those to whom absentee ballots were sent.
        • No other material is to be left in this box.

            Ballots must be received—either by mail or by depositing in the lockbox at the District Office—no later than 5:00 p.m. on the day of the election.

            Applications placed in the box after 5:00 p.m. on June 4 will not be responded to.
