Absentee & Advanced Voting

You may vote even if you cannot go to the polls on Election Day by voting by mail or in-person during the advance voting period.

Vote By Mail: Voters can request an absentee ballot 180 days before an election without providing a reason. To vote by mail, send or bring a written request to your county registrar’s office that includes your name, address, signature, and the election for which you are requesting an absentee ballot. You can also go online at, print and complete the application, and return it to your county registrar’s office. The county registrar’s office will mail your ballot after the application is approved and ballots are available. Your county registrar must receive your absentee ballots by the close of business on Election Day. Voters are not required to provide photo identification when voting by mail.

Vote Early in Person: Voters can cast a ballot in-person at their county registrar’s office 45 days prior to an election. You can also vote during Advance Voting Week, which takes place the Monday-Friday before Election Day. Voters are not required to provide a reason for voting early. If you cast your ballot in person, you must present an appropriate photo ID. Please contact your county registrar’s office for early voting times and locations in your county.
