  • Absentee ballots may be requested in writing, by phone, online, or in person up to and including the day of the election, without specifying a reason. However, if you are asking to receive your ballot by mail, please request it early enough to allow for postal mail delivery time – both to receive it and return it (2-5 days each way).
  • You can request an absentee ballot by calling your Municipal Clerk’s office at 669-6604.
  • You can request an absentee ballot online or by mail from the Secretary of State’s website:
  • Absentee ballot requests are being accepted right now.   Printed ballots will be available by mid-June, and we will issue your ballot as soon as possible after that date.
  • Ballots must be returned to the municipal clerk no later than 8:00 PM on Election Day.
