Vote-by-mail ballots break record



The county is mailing 88,556 vote-by-mail ballots to voters for the May 19 special election. That’s a record, representing more than 57 percent of the county’s registered voters.

In some cases, voters don’t have much choice. Additional precincts were declared vote-by-mail-only as a cost-saving measure. Still, officials said the number of people requesting the ballots has also risen.
