Early voting –
In person – Traditional early voting in person is not
permitted. If a voter qualifies for an absentee ballot, however, (see “By
mail” below), he may take his absentee ballot to the local election
authority and vote in person up until the night before the election.
By mail – A voter may vote early by mail if he meets one of the following
qualifications: absence from “the jurisdiction of the election authority in
which such voter is registered to vote” on Election Day; illness or physical
disability (including caregivers of those with an illness or physical
disability); work at a polling place other than his own on Election Day;
religious belief or practice prevents going to the polls; incarceration,
provided person is otherwise eligible to vote.
A request for an absentee/vote-by-mail ballot may be made six weeks before
an election and must be received by the voter’s local election authority no
later than 5:00 p.m. on the Wednesday before the election. A mailed absentee
ballot must be received by the close of polls on Election Day.
