If you plan to be out of the municipality on election day or if you have a disability or illness, you should request an absentee ballot, which still requires you to list a reason for your ballot. If you aren’t an absentee voter, you may apply for a mail-in ballot, you may simply request this ballot without a reason. Mail-in ballot applications are due by 5pm on October 27, 2020.
Ballots are usually ready 3 – 5 weeks before the election. Contact your county election office for more information. Ballots must be returned to your county election office by 8pm on election day.
