Voting by Mail/Absentee Ballot
With the November election predicted to coincide with a resurgence of COVID-19 cases, it's important that we act now to ensure our voices are heard and our votes are counted. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend “postal balloting” to reduce crowd size at polling stations.
Requesting your absentee ballot now gives you the option to mail in your vote for the November election. Absentee ballots will be mailed on September 4.

To receive a mail-in absentee ballot for an election, a voter or the voter’s near relative (spouse, brother, sister, parent, grandparent, child, grandchild, mother-in-law, father-in-law, daughter-in-law, son-in-law, stepparent, or stepchild) or legal guardian must use the State Absentee Ballot Request Form to request the ballot. Don't have access to a printer? Email us with your name and address and we'll mail a ballot request form to you.
Note: We've heard from people that it's best to print the ballot request form and fill it out manually rather than trying to fill it out online and print it.
