How do I request an absentee ballot?
You or your spouse, parents, or children may contact the County Clerk to request an absentee ballot application by phone, fax, mail, or in person. The County Clerk will then mail you the absentee ballot application or you, the voter only, can get an application in person at the County Clerks Office. You can mail it back or the voter may hand-deliver it in person. A third party cannot hand deliver your completed application to the county clerk.
When can I apply for an absentee ballot?
You can request an absentee ballot any time before an election if you know you are eligible to vote absentee. The County Clerk will issue you a mail-in absentee ballot within 3 days of the State Ballot printing deadline, which is 50 days before the election.
What is the last day I can apply for an absentee ballot?
The deadline for apply for a mail-in ballot is 7 days before an election. The completed application must be received by the County Clerk by mail or in person by the 7-day deadline. The absentee ballot must be received in the County Clerks Office by :00 p.m. CST time on Election Day for the ballot to be counted.
What if I did not receive my mail-in absentee ballot?
If you applied for an absentee ballot and, after a reasonable time, have not received your mail-in ballot, you contact the County Clerk and ask for a second ballot. The County Board of Elections will only count the first properly returned voted ballot.
What if I find out that I will be in the County on Election Day and want to vote at my precinct?
Any person who has received a mail-in absentee ballot and discovers at least 7 days before the date of the election that he or she will be in the County on Election Day, and who has not voted the ballot, must cancel his or her ballot by returning it unvoted to the County Clerks Office. There are no provisions in State law for returning an unvoted ballot less than 7 days before an election or on Election Day.
What if I need help filling out my ballot?
A voter may have assistance because of blindness, physical disability, or the inability to read English. Any person of the voters choice may assist the voter, except the voters employer or agent of the employer or an officer or agent of the voters union. The person assisting the voter must complete the portion of the voter assistance form on the absentee ballot inner envelope provided by the County Clerk. The person assisting the voter must make an oath declaring that the assister marked the ballot under the directions of the voter requiring assistance.
