Absent Voter Ballots

March 10, 2020 Presidential Primary Absent Voter Ballot Application

Applications maybe submitted by email to

Please note:  This is a closed Primary, which means that voters must select either a Republican Party, Democratic Party or Proposal Only ballot type in order to receive a ballot.  By law, this selection must be in writing; therefore voters will be required to select their ballot type on the application to vote at their precinct or on their application for an absent voter ballot.
If a voter is submitting an application for an absent voter ballot and does not select a ballot type, ballot delivery could be delayed until that information is obtained in writing.

Options for Voters who wish to Spoil their Absent Voter Ballot or obtain a Replacement Ballot:

There are a number of reasons why a voter may want to spoil an absent voter ballot which they have already voted and/ or submitted, or to obtain a new ballot if they never received their original. Requests for a replacement absent voter ballot must always be submitted in writing.
