VOTING BY ABSENTEE BALLOT FOR THE
NOVEMBER 6, 2018 GENERAL ELECTION

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 10 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, unless the elector is otherwise exempt from this
requirement.
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, November 1, 2018.
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 or other specified location during the days and hours
