INDIAN RIVER COUNTY – City of Sebastian and the City of Vero Beach voters who have a vote-by-mail request on file should be on the lookout for their ballot.

On Election Day, voters must vote at their assigned voting precinct.

Completed vote-by-mail ballots must be received by the Elections Office no later than 7 p.m. on Election Day in order to be counted.  Voters must place their ballot inside the official return envelope provided and sign the voter certificate on the backside of the envelope.
