Permanent Vote By-Mail
Vote at your convenience!

No need to stand in line on election day!

You can have your ballot mailed directly to you on an on-going basis. Anyone who is currently registered may apply to vote by-mail permanently by simply marking “Yes” on the absentee/by-mail ballot application. Ballots are mailed out approximately 3 weeks prior to the election. They may be mailed back anytime as long as they are postmarked the day before the election. They may also be dropped off at any polling location on election day; or if you change your mind you may surrender your un-voted ballot to a poll worker at an early voting site or your election day polling location and vote on the electronic voting machine.

Deadline to Apply for a By-Mail Ballot
For voters living in the United States, the clerk must receive the application no later than the Friday before the election. For overseas voters, the clerk must receive the application no later than 20 days before the election.

Military and Overseas Citizens By-Mail Ballot Application
Military voters and citizens living abroad may file a ballot application electronically. An application must be filed with the County Clerk for each federal general election.
