What are the top 10 things I need to know about absentee voting?

  1. Get your ballot early. Do not wait until the last minute.
  2. Mail your voted ballot back as soon as you can.
  3. If you spoil or miss-mark your ballot contact your county Department.
  4. Fill in the ovals. Do not use any other mark.
  5. Sign and date the ballot envelope.
  6. Only Democrats can vote in a Democratic Primary and Republicans in a Republican Primary.
  7. Have your affidavit notarized if your reason is in Section B.

  9. Do not write on the ballot except to make your selections or correct a mistake.
