Mailed Ballots

1

Request your mailed ballot

Anyone can request a ballot be mailed to them without a reason.


We recommend anyone interested in this option to submit a request as soon as possible to allow time for the request to be processed and mailed.

If you do not have a DMV Driver’s license or state ID, you may print and return a paper absentee request form.

Complete your ballot

  1. Mark your ballot with a black or blue ballpoint pen, completely filling in the ovals.

  3. Completely fill out the statement on “Envelope B.”
    • Fill in your name and address as they appear on the pre-printed return envelope that you received with your ballot.
    • Sign the statement (no witness signature is required).
    • Date the statement with today‘s date.

If you’ve changed your mind and you no longer want to vote absentee, bring your absentee ballot to an early voting location (preferred) or to your regular polling place on Primary Day (Tuesday, June 8th) to vote.

If you have lost or haven't received your absentee ballot, go to early voting to vote normally. Only wait until Election Day if it is your only option.
