          Vote by Mail Applications must be received by the County Clerk:

1.          At least 7 days prior to the election if the absentee ballot is to be mailed to the voter; and

2.          By 3:00 PM on the day prior to the election IF the voter appears in person at the County Clerk’s Office.

3.          A voter may apply for a Vote by Mail Ballot for any SINGLE election by filling out Sections 1 through 9 and indicating which election the application is for in Section 1. 

4.          There are also two additional options available to you: 

A)                 Calendar Year Elections – A voter may apply to receive Vote by Mail ballots for all remaining elections held in the voter’s election district within the calendar year.  At the end of the calendar year, the voter may reapply to receive Vote by Mail Ballots or vote at their local polling place.

B)                 All General Elections – A voter may apply to receive a Vote by Mail ballot for all future General Elections.  A voter who selects this option will be sent a Vote by Mail ballot for all future November General Elections until the voter notifies the County Clerk’s Office and  requests that Vote by Mail Ballots no longer be sent.

 

Once the Vote By Mail Application is received by the County Clerk, the County Clerk will then forward the mail-in ballot to the voter.  The mail-in ballot MUST be received by the County Board of Elections, by mail or delivery, BEFORE the close of polls on Election Day in order to be counted.
