How can I request an absentee ballot?

Online here OR picking up the application in our office, calling to have the application mailed to you, or by simply writing on a piece of paper your full name, date of birth, residence address, as well as the address you wish for the ballot to be mailed, which election and if a primary, which party’s ballot you wish to receive as well as your signature. All applications may be mailed, faxed or hand delivered to our office. We will compare the signature with that on your voter registration application, and, if it matches, you will receive an absentee ballot. All requests must be turned in by the Friday prior to the election. You may begin requesting an absentee ballot 180 days (6 months) prior to the election.

Can I turn my absentee ballot in at the polls or at the Early Voting poll?

No. You must turn your ballot in by: mail or in person in our office. If someone is turning the ballot in for you, they must sign as assisting on the oath and you must have a disability which would prevent you from either mailing or bringing the ballot yourself.

What is the deadline for absentee ballots being turned back in?

Absentee ballots must be in our office by 7:00 pm election night unless you are a family member of or a military service member or an overseas citizen, then you have until the last mail run the Friday following the election.

Do I have to request an absentee ballot every election, or will you just send me one every election?

Elderly (75 or older), voters with disabilities, military service members and their families and overseas citizens only have to turn in one application per election year to receive all ballots for that year. This rule applies to all elections except the Presidential Preference Primary, which requires a separate application. All other voters must turn in an absentee ballot request for every election they wish to vote absentee.

I registered a long time ago and haven’t voted, am I still able to vote?

If you have not voted in the past two general elections (a general election takes place every even numbered year), your record becomes inactive. After being inactive for three years, your record is automatically deleted by the Secretary of State.
