Getting a ballot by mail is a two-step process.  You must first complete an Absentee By-Mail Request Form (click link below to download request form or call our office to have one mailed to you) and return the form to our office.  Our Election Officials will then process the request and mail your ballot to you. 

When you receive your Absentee By-Mail ballot, your ballot MUST be mailed.
