How We Produce Absentee Vote by Mail Ballots
Before we print, send us your ballot styles and precinct information. Midwest Direct can provide all materials needed for the Absentee Vote by Mail process including envelopes, inserts, and ballots. We are set up to variably print your envelopes to include any data specific to the county. We provide proofs of your ballot styles and layouts of all the information printed on the identification envelopes.
When supplying the county voter mailing file, you have a few options: You can supply the file to us daily for print, preparation, and mailing; or if your quantities are small, you can group several days together and choose to mail all at once.
Once we have received the voter mailing file, our data team processes it for the corresponding, pre-approved, ballot styles and to comply with USPS regulations. From there, a ballot, insert and envelope print file is generated and sent to our print room to be printed.
Once the ballots, inserts, and envelopes are printed, they are sent to our print mail production department to be folded and inserted to create the final mailing packet. All inserting is done mechanically using camera verification equipment to ensure every voter receives the correct ballot and provides you with accurate, secure, and high-quality production every step of the way.
The final Absentee Vote by Mail packets are delivered directly to the USPS and accepted into the mail stream and sent to each recipient. Once everything has been mailed, we return your file to you as a record of what we received, produced, and mailed from that file.
