One application is required for each election in which you wish to vote. After your application is approved, your ballot packet will be mailed to your residence address or the mailing address you specify on the application. The packet includes the ballot, instructions, and all necessary envelopes to return your completed ballot.

Note: Your completed ballot will be counted if it is returned by 7:00 pm on election day. Your completed ballot must be returned by mail (USPS, DHL, FedEx or other courier service) or hand-delivered by you only if it is to be counted.

Notice to voters using US mail service: the USPS delivery standards changed early last year so that First Class delivery went from 1-3 days to 2-5 days and Standard delivery is now 2-9 days. Please take this into consideration as you start thinking towards absentee voting for the Presidential election.
