Absentee ballots are available 45 days before the election. You may request an early absentee ballot from your County Election official either in person, by mail, or by fax. Pieces of verification information you will need to include are: your name, residence address and, if different, your mailing address.

When must the voted ballot be returned?

The ballot may be mailed or hand-delivered to the County Election Office. In order to be counted, the ballot must be received by the County Election Office no later than 8:00 p.m. on Election Day.
