Important Note: A recent change in the law requires the State Board of Elections and each local board of elections to refer to absentee ballots as “mail-in ballots” and absentee voting as “mail-in voting.” Please note that this change in terminology does NOT change the process of mail-in voting.
Any registered voter can request a no-excuse mail-in ballot and vote from home in November’s general election. Apply for a mail-in ballot online, by mail or in person:
You also may go online or send a request through the mail to receive an emailed ballot that you may then print, complete and mail or hand-deliver. Your request for an emailed ballot must be received by Nov. 4.
You can designate an agent to deliver your ballot application, pick up your ballot and bring it to you. You and the person you choose must complete a mail-in ballot agent form and take it to your local board of elections.
Return completed ballots by mail or in person, including those received via email.
Use the state’s voter services portal to track the status of your ballot.
