Absentee by Mail Voting

Due to changes with the passing of The Election Integrity Act of 2021, absentee voting by mail has changed. Please read this in its entirety to get a clear understanding on the changes and new requirements. Voters can request an absentee ballot 78 days before an election without providing a reason. The last day to submit an absentee voting application is 11 days prior to the election.

Any person applying for an absentee-by-mail ballot shall make their application in writing on the form made available by the Secretary of State. The forms are different from the previous ones used in prior elections, be sure to use the new form (APP-21) and fill out the front and back with the information pertaining to you.
