  • Even if you request or cast and return an absentee ballot, you may still go to the polls and vote in person. The Election Law recognizes that plans change. The Board of Elections is required to check the poll book before canvassing any absentee ballot. If the voter comes to the poll site, on Election Day or during early voting, and votes in person, the absentee ballot is set aside and not counted.

Overseas and Military Absentee Voters

The Federal Post Card Application is for US citizens living overseas, active military members, and the spouses of active military members who wish to vote by absentee ballot. This application is valid for 4 years or 2 federal elections. If you move during that period, submit another application indicating your new address so we can be sure that you receive your ballot. You may email the application to , but we must also receive the original form in the mail.
