Absentee Voting
Obtaining an Absentee Voter Ballot
As a registered voter, you may obtain an absentee voter ballot if you are:
  • Age 60 years old or older
  • Unable to vote without assistance at the polls
  • Expecting to be out of town on election day
  • In jail awaiting arraignment or trial
  • Unable to attend the polls due to religious reasons
  • Appointed to work as an election inspector in a precinct outside of your precinct of residence.

Registers to vote by Mail
A person who registers to vote by mail must vote in person in the first election in which he/she participates. The restriction does not apply to overseas voters, voters who are handicapped, or voters who are 60 years of age or older. (Voting in person on one governmental level clears the restriction on the other levels. For example, if a voter subject to the restriction votes in person at a school election, the voter would be free to obtain an absentee ballot for the first state election in which he or she wishes to participate.)
