QUINCY — The Adams County clerk's office has installed a ballot drop box for the Nov. 3 election.

The drop box is directly outside the west entrance of the Adams County Courthouse on Fifth Street.

In a press release, Adams County Clerk Ryan Niekamp said the office has received many calls requesting a drop box for those who will be voting by mail. He said that extra precautions have been taken to ensure the ballots remain safe at all time.

Voters will be able to access the drop box starting Sept. 24, which is when mail ballots placed in the mail as well as the start of early voting.
