Please consider completing a mail-in ballot application TODAY in order to help secure your right to vote and stay safe amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. You can apply here:
ABSENTEE & VOTE BY MAIL INFORMATION
Whether you’ll be out of town, or want to do your part to keep our seniors safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19, we encourage you to request a mail-in ballot.
Absentee ballot – If you plan to be out of the municipality on election day or if you have a disability or illness, you can request an absentee ballot.
Mail-in ballot – If you’d like to vote by mail, you may request this and return your ballot to your county election office. Unlike the absentee ballots, you may request this ballot without a reason.
What if I requested a mail-in or absentee ballot but I didn’t receive a ballot, lost my ballot, or changed my mind and want to vote in-person?
- If you already submitted a mail-in or absentee ballot, you cannot vote at your polling place on election day.
- If you did not return your mail-in or absentee ballot and you want to vote in person, you have two options:
- Bring your ballot and the pre-addressed outer return envelope to your polling place to be voided. After you surrender your ballot and envelope and sign a declaration, you can then vote a regular ballot.
- If you don’t surrender your ballot and return envelope, you can only vote by provisional ballot at your polling place. Your county board of elections will then verify that you did not vote by mail before counting your provisional ballot.
DAY OF VOTING INFORMATION
Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. on voting days.

- Driver’s license
