Absentee Ballots

Absentee ballots must be requested in writing by either the voter or the voter’s family member. The request must be submitted to the local election official.

When completing the application, you may indicate whether you are requesting a ballot for a specific election, or if you will be needing a ballot for all elections this year. Please note that absentee ballot applications expire at the end of each calendar year. If you are a voter with a permanent physical disability, you may file a note from your doctor to that effect with your local election official. Voters with permanent physical disabilities are sent completed applications at the beginning of each year, to be signed and returned to their local election official.

Attached is an Absentee Ballot request which can be downloaded, filled out and mailed, or brought to the local election official. If a family member is requesting the absentee ballot, download the Absentee Ballot Family request.

If you are voting by mail, you should be sure to submit your application in a timely manner. Please allow enough time for the ballot to be mailed to you and for you to return the ballot by Election Day. All ballots being mailed from inside the United States must be received by your local election official no later than the close of polls on Election Day.
