You can apply for an Absentee Voter Form by clicking the link.
Ballots may be requested by mail up until 2:00 p.m. on the Saturday prior to an election. Please note that is rarely enough time to complete the process. Request your ballot as soon as possible.
The last day to obtain an absentee ballot in the office is the Monday prior to the election (by 4:00 p.m.). The ballot must be voted in the office and returned. All ballots must be returned by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day to be counted.
Completing The Ballot
Inside your ballot envelope will be the ballot, a return envelope, and a secrecy sleeve. Vote the ballot by completely connecting the arrow to the right of the candidate's name. Be sure to vote for only the number of candidates listed in the heading for that office. Some offices allow more than one candidate to be nominated. Complete both sides of the ballot. Place the ballot in the secrecy sleeve, then in the return envelope - seal it, sign it, and date it within the red box on the front of the envelope. The ballot will not be counted if the envelope is not signed!
Returning The Ballot
Ballots may be returned by postal mail or dropped off at the Clerk's office by the voter, or an immediate family member, or a person residing in the same household. Ballots must be returned by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day.
