Registered voters who cannot go to their polling place or are unable to vote on election day may vote by absentee ballot. Voters who have moved within the state during the 28 days before an election can vote absentee in person at the Clerk’s Office.

  • In Person: You may request and mark an absentee ballot in person at the City Clerk’s Office upon presenting your Photo ID.  The deadline is the close of business (5:00 p.m.) on the Friday before the election.
  • By Mail: You may request an absentee ballot by mail. Your written request can go to the City Clerk any time before an election until 5:00 p.m. the Thursday BEFORE the election. Send your full name, the address of your legal voting residence, the fact that you are requesting an absentee ballot and the address to which you want the ballot sent. The City Clerk’s Office must receive your absentee ballot by election day in order for your vote to be counted.  Absentee applications by mail are valid on a yearly basis and will need to be renewed at the start of each year for Regular voters.
