Domestic Civilian Voters

Our office is not currently accepting absentee ballot requests from domestic civilian voters.

The next scheduled election is the City and School Election on November 7, 2023. We can accept absentee requests beginning August 29, 2023. Requests submitted too early will be rejected and returned to the voter, as required by law.

Additional special elections may be scheduled.

You cannot submit an Absentee Ballot Request Form online. Forms may be printed, picked up at our office, or we can mail one to you. Forms must be completed, including signature and date, and returned either through the mail or delivered to our office no later than 5:00 PM 15 days prior to the election.

You must complete a separate request form for each election in which you want a mailed ballot.
