Have a disability that keeps you from voting at your polling place; or
Have a religious belief that prevents you from voting at your polling place on Election Day
Make sure to apply as early as possible. The U.S. Postal Service recommends allowing up to 7 days for ballot delivery in each direction, so it is best to apply at least 2 weeks before Election Day, or earlier if your ballot is being mailed out of town. Absentee ballots must be requested in writing at least 4 business days before Election Day.
