There is a NEW ABSENTEE BALLOT REQUEST PORTAL. Simply go to the portal and fill out all the information needed and the request is sent to us electronically. This portal eliminates some of the wait time in having to call our office and wait for the application to come in the mail and then only to have to mail it back to us for approval. This process allows the Secretary of States Office to match your information against what we already have on file. You may download a PDF for your records showing you requested a ballot through the portal. This PDF is for your records only.
