  • Expecting to be absent from the community in which you are registered for the entire time the polls will be open on Election Day.
  • In jail awaiting arraignment or trial.
  • Unable to attend the polls due to religious reasons.

Absentee ballots must be returned by 8 p.m. on Election Day. That means that you should mail 5 business days prior to the Election or contact your local clerk to find out how you can drop it off.
