Early Voting

Can anybody vote early by mail?

To vote early by mail (which used to be called “voting absentee”), you must meet certain criteria:
  • You will be away from your county on Election Day and during early voting;
  • You are sick or disabled;
  • You are 65 years of age or older on Election Day; or
  • You are confined in jail, but eligible to vote.
If you fall into one of the above categories, you will need to complete an Application for Ballot by Mail, which you can obtain from the Early Voting Clerk in the county where you are registered or from the Secretary of State’s office. There are some very specific deadlines you must abide by, so refer to our section “Vote Early by Mail”
