Early voting –
In person – A voter may vote early in person only if
he qualifies as an absentee voter (see “By mail” below). Absentee voting in
person begins approximately 30 days before the Primary Election and 45 days
before the General Election at the voter’s local registrar’s office.
Absentee in-person voting ends on the Saturday before the election.
By mail – A voter may vote early by mail if he meets one of several
criteria, among which are: the voter will be away from his county of
registration on Election Day; the voter cannot go to the polls due to
illness, disability, or pregnancy; the voter is a caregiver to a family
member who is ill or disabled; or if the voter, in the regular course of
business, will spend at least 11 hours working and commuting to and from his
job on Election Day.
Applications for absentee/vote-by-mail ballots must be postmarked no later
than the Tuesday before the election or completed in person at the
registrar’s office at least three days before the election. Absentee ballots
must be returned by Election Day.
