Mail-In Ballots

Mail-In Ballot Application Information (Formerly Absentee Ballot)
  • You must be a registered voter in order to apply for a mail-in ballot
  • Once you apply for a mail-in ballot (PDF), you will not be permitted to vote by machine at your polling place in the same election
  • You will receive instructions with your ballot
  • Your mail-in ballot must be received by the County Board of Election before close of polls on Election Day
  • Do not submit more than one application for the same election
  • You must apply for a mail-in ballot for each election, unless you designate otherwise under "Voter Options"
Please Note: A voter may apply for a mail-in ballot by mail up to 7 days prior to the election. He or she may also apply in person to the County Clerk until 3 p.m the day before the election. Note also that voters have an option of indicating on an application for a mail-in ballot that they would prefer to receive a ballot for each election that takes place during the remainder of the calendar year. Voters also now have an option of automatically receiving a mail-in ballot for each General Election. If such voter no longer wants this option, the County Clerk's office must be notified in writing.
