For the first time ever you will be able to vote by mail, telephone, or online. Here are all the ways you can vote:

By Mail – Fill out your ballot and mail it back to PERA. It must be postmarked by May 31.

By Phone – Call 1-800-249-8960 to cast your vote. You must vote before 12 midnight on May 31.

By Internet – Visit www.vres.us/copera. You need to enter a PIN, which will be located within your ballot package, and the last four digits of your social security number. The PIN is not the same that you use to set up your secure PERA accounts. It is a ballot PIN that is designed to only be used in conjunction with this election. You must vote before 12 midnight on May 31.

If you lost or spoiled your ballot you can request a new one. Call 1-800-218-4026 Monday – Friday, 7:30am-4:00pm.
