Mail-In Ballot Application

Ballot Application

Who May Vote by Civilian Absentee Ballot? 

  • Absentee ballots are for voters, who are not military or overseas voters, who have a reason for absence, including voters who will not be in their municipality on Election Day due to work or vacation, voters who are celebrating a religious holiday, voters with disabilities, and voters such as college students who also may be away from the municipality on Election Day, if they don’t choose to vote where they go to school. Absentee ballots are also for those who are unable to attend their polling place due to illness or physical disability.

Who May Vote by Mail-In Ballot?

  • If a voter does not qualify as an absentee voter, they are eligible for a mail-in ballot. An excuse is not required for a mail-in ballot. For example, if the voter won't be absent from a municipality on Election Day and would prefer to vote from home, they may request a mail-in ballot.
