Here are the facts:

All eligible Active and Inactive voters will be mailed an Absentee Ballot application that can be used to request an Absentee Ballot for the June 23rd 2020 Primary Elections (Presidential Primary & Congressional/State/Local Primary Elections) which will include a postage paid return envelope. Voters should start to receive them in the mail starting the weekend of Friday, May 15th.
2. You can select Temporary Illness as the reason for requesting Absentee ballots in Box 1 on the application.
3. You can select Primary Election in Box 2 on the application and receive two (2) Absentee ballots: one for the Presidential Primary and one for the Congressional/State/Local Primary Elections.*
4. All applications must be sent back to the Board of Elections, but received no later than Tuesday, June 16th in order to receive ballots in time.
