With the November election just around the corner, voting by mail remains an option for voters to cast their ballot prior to Election Day.
Registered voters can request a vote by mail ballot through the mail or in-person. The deadline to request a ballot by mail is October 29. Meanwhile, the deadline for all in-person early voting requests must be made by November 2.
A vote by mail application must include:
- Home Address
- Address where the voter would like application to be mailed
- Party Affiliation for Primary Election
- Any vote by mail ballot must be placed into the certification envelope provided. The certification on the envelope must be completed, signed, and the envelope sealed. Mailed ballots must be postmarked no later than Election Day and must be received within 14 days of the election. All vote by mail ballots are processed centrally.
If a voter has requested a vote by mail ballot but decides to vote at a polling place on Election Day they must submit their vote by mail ballot, or a portion of the ballot, for cancellation when they arrive.
If a voter requested but has not received their vote by mail ballot or their ballot was not received by the election authority, they will be asked to fill out an affidavit to that fact.
Another option for voters is to vote early. Registered voters may cast a ballot prior to Election Day without having to provide a reason for wanting to vote early. This ballot is cast by in-person at the office of the election authority or at an Early Voting Center.
