Mail Ballot Application

Complete this application to request a mail ballot.

Before you begin

To request an absentee ballot, use the online absentee application or download the paper application below. You must complete a mail ballot application to receive a ballot. You can return your application by email, mail, fax, or in-person.

Things to remember:

  • You can print the application or complete it electronically.
    • Typed signatures are allowed but cannot be used to match voter signatures. Signature matching is only required if the identification number on the application does not match the mail ballot signature envelope.
  • Download the application before typing in your information.
  • We recommend applying for a mail ballot at least 7 days before Election Day.
  • We'll begin mailing ballots out when early voting begins on June 28 (State Primary) and September 20 (General Election).
  • Depending on where your ballot is being sent, please allow up to 7 days for it to arrive.
  • Once your ballot arrives, you'll need to return it to us by the required deadline.
