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.
