Voting by Absentee Ballot

Who can vote absentee?

Any registered voter can vote absentee in any election (no reason has to be given). To request a permanent absentee ballot, you must certify that you are indefinitely confined.

How do I get an absentee ballot?

  • Request an absentee ballot from your city, town or village office by mail or phone.
  • In-person early absentee voting is available. Contact your city, town or village office for dates, location and times.

Will my absentee ballot be counted?

Yes, if the envelope is signed by the voter and has a witness signature and address, and the ballot is received no later than the close of Election Day at 8:00 p.m.
