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.
