VOTING BY ABSENTEE BALLOT
Any qualified elector who is unable or unwilling to appear at the polling place on Election Day
may request to vote an absentee ballot. A qualified elector is any U.S. citizen, who will be 18
years of age or older on Election Day, who has resided in the ward or municipality where he or
she wishes to vote for at least 28 consecutive days before the election. The elector must also
be registered in order to receive an absentee ballot. Proof of identification must be provided
before an absentee ballot may be issued.
You must make a request for an absentee ballot in writing.
Contact your municipal clerk and request that an application for an absentee ballot be sent to you for the primary or election or both. You may also submit a written request in the form of a letter. Your written request must list your voting address within the municipality where you wish to vote, the address where the absentee ballot should be sent, if different, and your signature. You may make application for an absentee ballot by mail or in person.
Making application to receive an absentee ballot by mail
The deadline for making application to receive an absentee ballot by mail is:
5 pm on the fifth day before the election, Thursday, October 30, 2014.
Note: Special absentee voting application provisions apply to electors who are indefinitely
confined to home or a care facility, in the military, hospitalized, or serving as a sequestered
juror. If this applies to you, contact the municipal clerk regarding deadlines for requesting
and submitting an absentee ballot.
Voting an absentee ballot in person
You may also request and vote an absentee ballot in the clerk's office. Please telephone
the clerk for an appointment.
