Close to the date of an election it can be a gamble to mail in your ballot. A week ahead is probably safe to ensure it gets delivered on time to be counted. Beyond that, it’s a guessing game. Safer to drop it off in person.

House Bill 3291 would provide more certainty for voters. If your ballot is postmarked by Election Day and arrives to be counted not later than seven days after Election Day, it gets counted.
