DEADLINES TO NOTE:

“Regular” Request Deadline: If the ballot must be issued by mail, the application for the ballot must reach the election official no later than 2:00 p.m. on the Saturday prior to the election.

“Late” Request Deadline: Absent voter ballots can be picked up by the voter in person anytime up to 4:00 p.m. on the day prior to the election. A voter who visits his or her clerk’s office on the day prior to the election to obtain an absent voter ballot must vote the ballot in the office; the voter is not permitted to leave the office with the ballot.

“Emergency” Request Deadline: An elector may make an “emergency” request for an absentee ballot if he or she cannot attend the polls because of 1) personal disablement or 2) a family death or illness which will require that the elector leave the community for the entire time the polls are open on Election Day. “Emergency” requests for absentee ballots must be made after the deadline for making “regular” requests for absentee ballots (2:00 p.m. on the Saturday before the election) and before 4:00 p.m. on Election Day. The emergency must have occurred at a time which made it impossible for the voter to apply for an absentee ballot by the statutory deadline for “regular” applications. This means that the emergency must have occurred after 2:00 p.m. on the Saturday before the election.

If an “emergency” absent voter ballot is requested, the person making the application may authorize the person delivering the application to pick up and deliver the ballot. The authorization to pick up and deliver the ballot must be in writing and must be signed by the applicant. An “emergency” absentee ballot may also be delivered by hand to the applicant by a person authorized to do so by the clerk to handle this task.

ALL BALLOTS MUST BE RETURNED TO THE CLERK BY 8:00 PM ON ELECTION DAY.
