VOTING BY MAIL
Voting by mail is a boon to shut-ins, people who can’t stand in lines, or people who are out of town during an election.
Consider helping a neighbor apply for a vote by mail ballot (you do not have to be a Voter Registrar to help such a person).
If you wish to vote by mail, you must fill out and file an application EACH CALENDAR YEAR. For the May 6, 2017 election, you need to file an application and be registered by April 25, 2017.
ARE YOU ELIGIBLE TO VOTE BY MAIL?
Voters who wish to vote by mail must meet at least one of the four eligibility requirements listed below:
1. 65 years of age or older
2. Sick or disabled
3. Expected Absence from the County (Must be absent during the entire early voting period, Election Day, AND provide an out-of-county address where your ballot can be mailed, AND include dates you can receive mail at the out-of-county address)
4. Confined in jail, but otherwise eligible to vote
