All Poll Sites will have signage prominently displayed outside the entrance instructing voters dropping off completed absentee ballots only to proceed directly to the check-in table to see one of the Inspectors. There will be signage at the table for “Absentee Ballot Drop-Off” and an inspector will accept the absentee ballots while recording a list of said voters for ballot transmittal verification upon receipt at the Board of Elections. All absentee ballots will be kept with the affidavit ballots behind the Inspectors table in a secure ballot bag, sealed with a tamper evident seal to be delivered to the Board of Elections upon the close of polls each night.
