Obtaining your Absentee Ballot

Absentee voting

If you know you will not be in your voting district on a given Election Day, you may vote by absentee ballot.

Voters who are qualified to vote by absentee ballot must first apply for the absentee ballot; and the request is only valid for the calendar year of that particular request.

You may vote by absentee ballot if you will be:

  • Unavoidably absent from your county on Election Day
  • Unable to appear at the polls due to illness or disability
  • A patient in a veteran’s administration hospital
  • Detained in jail awaiting grand jury action or confined in prison after conviction of an offense other than a felony.

Absentee ballot application
When completing the application form, be sure to print clearly

Upon completion of the absentee ballot application, you must mail it to the Board of Elections. Once we are in receipt of your application, a ballot will be mailed to you, or you can bring it in in person and the absentee ballot will be given to you. You can also bring the absentee ballot back before the election and turn in your vote!

Remember that an application for an absentee ballot is only valid for the calendar year of the request.

Designate someone to pick up your ballot
If you cannot pick up your ballot, or will not be able to receive it through the mail, you have the right to designate someone to pick up your ballot for you. Only that person designated on your application in section 6 and/or section 7 of your application may pick up and deliver your ballot.

If disabled or permanently ill
If you check the box indicating your illness or disability is permanent, once your application is approved you will automatically receive a ballot for each election in which you are eligible to vote, without having to apply again, unless you have moved and, therefore, you must reapply again.

Please note that a power of attorney or printed name stamp is not allowed for any voting purpose, including absentee applications
