2022 Elections

Apply Online to Receive a Ballot in the Mail
To vote by mail, you must apply to have an absentee ballot mailed to you. Complete the online absentee ballot application for one or both of the 2022 elections. When ballots are available (46 days prior to each election), the ballots will be mailed to you with a postage-paid envelope for return.

Application Deadline
It is recommended you apply for a ballot at least 10 days before Election Day. This gives you the best chance to get your ballot in the mail and having time to mail it back or drop it off. You can apply after this date, but each day increases the chances you will not be able to receive and return your ballot by Election Day.

Apply by Mail, Email or Facsimile
Complete the absentee ballot application (PDF) and return it by email, mail, or in-person to:
