VOTING BY MAIL:  ALL registered voters are eligible to vote by mail. You must submit an application to the Elections Office to receive your ballot through the mail. These can be submitted as early as six (6) months prior to the election in which you wish to vote. Your application does not carry over from year to year. A new application must be submitted each election year. ALL ballots must be mailed from our office. You cannot pick up a ballot to vote at home. Ballots may be returned in person by the voter or delivered by a relative or caregiver, and through the mail. When returning your ballot, however, please be mindful of the amount of glue you use to seal your envelope so that it does not adhere to and cause damage to the ballot. Regardless of how the ballot is folded when you receive it, ALWAYS, return your ballot folded as you would a letter you were mailing to a friend (tri-fold). This will aid in efficient and accurate handling of your ballot when being opened on election night.
