Vote by Mail/Absentee Voting
You can vote by mail before an election by requesting and receiving an absentee ballot. Once you’ve successfully sent in your request, you will receive an absentee ballot in the mail no earlier than 28 days before the election. For the ballot to be counted, you must have to postmarked no later than the day before the election and it must be received by the Board of Elections no later than 10 days following the election.
Also note that if you request an absentee ballot, do not return it, then attempt to vote in person, you will be required to complete a provisional ballot.
Click here to get a copy of the absentee ballot request form. You can print this form, complete it, and mail to the Board of Elections. Once they receive it, you will be sent your absentee ballot.
You will mail both your absentee ballot request form and your completed ballot to:
