It’s also known as a mail in ballot. An absentee ballot is a paper ballot that you can vote on and submit before Election Day, instead of voting in person at your designated polling place.  It’s essentially a way to cast your vote if you know you won’t be able to make it to the polls on Election Day.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind about absentee ballots:

  • It’s important to be aware of the deadlines for requesting and returning your ballot.
  • Make sure you follow the instructions on your ballot carefully to avoid having it rejected.

• You must first fill out an application for the ballot. 
• You must have a copy of one of the accepted picture ID’s to send in with your ballot. 
• Your signature must match your registration card that’s kept on file at the county clerk’s office. 

Once your application is accepted, you will receive your ballot in the mail. 

  • It’s important to be aware of the deadlines for requesting and returning your ballot.
  • Make sure you follow the instructions on your ballot carefully to avoid having it rejected.

 

• You can still vote. This is called a provisional vote and IT WON’T COUNT until you go to the county clerk’s office and show them your ID. 
• This has to be done NO LATER than noon on the Monday after Election Day. 

Wearing any shirts/buttons/hats, etc supporting a candidate, issue or ballot measure into the courthouse/polling station.
