Absentee Voting

Absentee ballot applications are available beginning 3 months before election day. You may go in person to vote at the Clerk's Office as soon as absentee ballots are available, usually 30 to 45 days prior to the election. There is no need to fill out an application if you are voting in the Clerk's Office.

You can make a telephone request for your own ballot application. This application can be mailed, faxed or delivered in person to the municipal clerk. You can down load and print an application by clicking the link below.

You can  also obtain a ballot for an immediate family member or domestic partner in this same way. The ballot will be mailed to the voter directly or to the immediate family or domestic partner making the request.
NOTE: Immediate family member includes: spouse, parent, child, sister, brother, stepparent, stepchildren, stepsister, stepbrother, mother-in-law, father-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, guardian or former guardian.

You may make a written request for a "Third Person" (someone other than the voter or the voter's immediate family member or domestic partner) to obtain and hand deliver an absentee ballot. You must designate, in a written request or application, the specific third person who will handle the ballot, only this designated third person may carry the absentee ballot. Ballots cast in this way must be witnessed by a notary public, municipal clerk or clerk of courts, or 2 witnesses are required.

All absentee ballots must be received  by 8PM on Election Day, any ballots received after this time will not be counted.
