Early Voting Options


If you are eligible to vote on election day, you are eligible to vote during the early voting period. The lines are shorter, and the days and hours are more convenient. Early voting is open to all registered voters, no excuse necessary.

Personal Appearance

Early voting by personal appearance starts April 23, 2018, and the last day of regular early voting by personal appearance is May 01, 2018.


All currently registered voters are eligible to request and receive a by-mail ballot if any of the following conditions prevents them from voting in-person during the early voting period or on Election Day:
  • Expected absence from the county during both the early voting period and on election day. (The ballot must be mailed to an address outside the county.)
  • Disability
  • 65 years of age or older
  • Confinement in jail and not finally convicted of a felony
The request must state the address at which you are registered to vote, one of the above conditions for requesting a ballot, the address to which you want the ballot mailed and your signature. If the ballot is not to be mailed outside the County and not to the address at which you are registered, you must give explanation as to the address such as nursing home, hospital, etc.


Applications for ballot by mail may not be submitted more than 60 days before election day and must be received by the Early Voting Clerk no later than the close of business. Send applications to:
