Absentee Ballot Deadline

If you received your Absentee Ballot and did not return it and would like to vote in person on Election Day, it is recommended that you bring your absentee ballot with you to your polling location.  That Absentee Ballot will be ‘spoiled” or voided and you can proceed to vote.  If you forget to bring it with you, you will need to sign an affidavit that you did not use the Absentee Ballot and then you can vote.  However, those votes are noted and need to be verified by the Clerk’s office.  So, we recommend bringing your unused Absentee Ballots with you to the polls to ensure your VOTE counts!
