This document can be your MVA-issued license, ID card, or change of address card, or your paycheck, bank statement, utility bill, or other government document with your name and new address. You will be able to register to vote and vote.

For the 2016 Presidential General, your request for an absentee ballot application must be received (not just mailed) by the deadline: Nov. 1, 2016, via mail or fax. Nov. 4, 2016, via Internet. After these dates, you must come in the elections office to do a late absentee or vote early.

Deadline for receipt of absentee ballots

Any absentee ballot, whether mailed or hand delivered, is timely if it reaches the election office by 8 pm on Election Day. An absentee ballot may not be faxed. Any ballot received by mail is timely if it arrives by 4 pm on the Wednesday after Election Day, and if the US Postal Service has affixed a postmark on the envelope verifying that the ballot was mailed before Election Day. If the postmark is illegible, the voter’s affidavit on the ballot envelope, indicating that the ballot was completed and mailed before Election Day, is sufficient.
