Early Voting & Absentee Voting

 
 
EARLY VOTING is a wonderful convenience that is offered to ALL registered voters. A registered voter does NOT have to have a specific reason to vote early, either in the Clerk's Office or at an Early Voting Satellite location.  ANY registered voter can vote early at ANY available early voting location.  Voters ARE required to show photo ID.

 

Ways to vote early:

1.      Vote In-Person at the office of the County Clerk: Early Voting in the Clerk's Office begins 28 days before an election and will be available at least two Saturdays before Election Day. Early voting ends at noon the day before an election day. ANY registered voter can voter early without having a specific reason.

  1. Visit an Early Voting Satellite location:  Early Voting Satellite locations will be set up prior to Election Day.  There will be various locations with convenient hours of operation for ANY registered voter to visit to cast a ballot without having a specific reason.  An up to date list with available locations and times will be published before each election.

ABSENTEE VOTING is a convenient way for registered voters who are unable to vote in-person (during Early Voting or on Election Day) to vote by Mail or Traveling Board.  Voters voting Absentee by Mail or by Traveling Board are NOT required to show photo ID.

Ways to vote by absentee:

1.      Absentee by Mail: You must request an absentee ballot application, complete it and return it by mail or fax.  The application will be processed and a ballot will be sent to you by mail. You may vote Absentee by Mail if you are a registered voter and you:

·         Will be absent from the county of residence on election day; or,

·         Have election duties on election day; or,

·         Will be confined on election day due to illness or injury; or,

·         Have disabilities and believe your polling place is not accessible; or,

·         Are 65 years of age or older; or,

·         Will be caring for a confined person on election day; or,

·         Are scheduled to work for the entire 12 hours that the polls are open.

(Absent Military and Overseas Voters may also vote by email or fax.)

2.      Absentee by Traveling Board: If you need assistance to vote, you may request to have the Traveling Board come to where you reside. The bi-partisan team will arrive at your place of residence with your ballot.  You may vote Absentee by Traveling Board if you are a registered voter and you:

·         Will be confined on election day due to illness or injury; or,

·         Will be caring for a confined person on election day; or,

·         Have disabilities and believe your polling place is not accessible; or,

·         Are physically unable to complete the ballot and sign the affidavit on your own.
