Voting by Absentee Ballot

Any registered voter may vote by absentee ballot. You do not need to be ill or "absent" to be an absentee voter.

You may request an absentee ballot as early as 90 days before an election. (No absentee ballots are issued on election day except to a voter who is a resident of a health care facility). The request for an absentee ballot must be made to your county auditor or elections department (not to the Secretary of State).

NOTE: Absentee ballots must be signed and postmarked or delivered to the county election officer on or before election day.

Requesting an Absentee Ballot

One-time absentee ballot requests may be made either in person, by phone, fax, electronically or by mail. Contact your County Auditor to request an absentee ballot.

Please keep in mind that absentee ballots must be signed and postmarked or delivered to the county election officer on or before election day.
