Election specifics In addition to the Quincy area water districts, recreation, fire, public utility and community services districts throughout the county have seats up for the UDEL elections in NOvember. Election rules state all candidates may be full- or part-time residents, but must be registered voters within the boundaries of the district. Each race requires constituents to vote by marl. "All of our UDEL elections are by mailed ballot because there are only a few districts that ever go to election," Williams said, since there are rarely more interested individuals than there are positions on the board. She emphasized that it's important to vote, and vote early. "Vote it and return it," she said. "Every vote does count, if you get it in on time." Williams said voting by mail is easy and convenient. Returned mail ballot postage is prepaid, or voters can drop their ballots off in the ballot return box located outside the county courthouse's security entrance at 520 Main St., in Quincy. Mail-in ballots are available 29 days prior to Election Day. Marked ballots must be postmarked by Nov. 3 and received by the division within three days of Election Day. Constituents who haven't received a ballot within 10 days before Nov. 3, or want to check the status of their returned ballot, can call 283-6256 or 283-6129.
