As of Friday, Bucher’s office had mailed nearly 52,000 vote-by-mail ballots to voters, and 8,485 of those ballots had been returned. Bucher estimated that roughly 3,000 more were returned by 1 p.m. Monday, but she didn’t have an official count.

For voters who haven’t yet mailed their absentee ballot, Bucher said they can be dropped off by 7 p.m. Tuesday at her main office, 240 S. Military Trail, West Palm Beach.

Bucher’s satellite offices will accept ballots until 5 p.m. Tuesday. They are located at 3188 PGA Blvd., Room #2401, Palm Beach Gardens; 345 S. Congress Ave., Room #103, Delray Beach; and 2976 State Road 15, Belle Glade.

Bucher said everything is progressing smoothly for the election with no issues, but she noted changes in some voting locations in Palm Beach Gardens, Greenacres, Highland Beach, Lake Worth and Boca Raton.

These three cities have temporary changes in some voting locations for this election only:

In Palm Beach Gardens, voters in precincts 1284, 1306, 1310 and 1340 who are usually assigned to Palm Beach State College Eissey Campus Theater will instead vote at the Gardens branch of the Palm Beach County Library at 11303 Campus Drive.

In Highland Beach, voters in precincts 4128, 4129 and 4156 who usually vote at St. Lucy Catholic Church will instead vote at the Highland Beach Library, 3618 S. Ocean Blvd.

In these two cities, the polling location changes are permanent:
