Early voting –
In person – A voter may vote early in person if he will be absent from his
city or town on Election Day, has a physical disability that prevents him
from going to his polling place, or cannot vote at the polls due to
religious belief. Once absentee ballots are available (usually three weeks
before an election), the voter may go to his local city or town hall, apply
for and vote an absentee ballot all in the same visit. The deadline for
early in-person absentee voting is noon on the day before the election.
By mail – A voter may vote early by mail if he has a valid reason (see “In
person” early voting above). Applications for absentee/vote-by-mail ballots
must be received by noon on the day before the election. Marked ballots must
be received by Election Day to be counted.
