Becoming Eligible To Vote By Mail
Vote By Mail
Out of the county on Election Day
Ill or disabled
If you are permanently ill or disabled you may apply for a permanent absentee ballot. If your absentee ballot application is approved for being permanently ill or disabled, a ballot will automatically be mailed to you for each election in which you are qualified to vote.
How It Works
An absentee ballot is a paper ballot which looks like the official paper ballot without the scanner timing marks. The ballot will have instructions for marking the ballot. You will receive an envelope that you will place the marked ballot into. This envelope contains an oath which must be signed or your ballot will not be counted. This envelope also must be sealed or it will not be counted. You will receive an addressed return envelope that your sealed ballot envelope is to be placed into and mailed to the Board of Elections. The ballot must be postmarked no later than the day before Election Day or, if delivered must be received at the Board of Elections no later than 9:00 pm on Election Day.
For the November 3rd, 2020 General Election Only, voters can have their absentee ballot postmarked on Election Day. You can hand-deliver your absentee ballot directly to the Board of Elections. There will be a drop box located outside the Board of Elections office so you can drop off your ballot after business hours. You may also turn in an absentee ballot during the early voting period or at your poll site by 9:00 pm on Election Day.
