It cost .65 (cent) for this request to be sent to me via county election board.

Yes, you will need 2 stamps, it weights 1.15 oz. Found something interesting about the postage, though - turns out if you don't put enough (or don't put any at all) on a ballot for a federal election, it will still get delivered, but the county is on the hook for the postage. Don't think it works that way for non-federal elections.

When I requested my ballot I also requested another voter id card. I'm just gonna include that with my ballot.

That's actually a great idea. But what about the November election? Or are you just going to request absentee ballots each and card each time, instead of the yearly option, which I now realize I stupidly did?
I better buy more art supplies.

Yeah, I plan to request each time. There's nothing like the experience of going to the voting place and casting my ballot, and I want to do it when I can. I'm hoping by November I won't need to vote by mail.
