Permanent Absentee Voting
If you cannot vote at the polling place due to one of the reasons below, you may apply to your County Clerk
to be placed on the permanent absentee voting list. Once your application is accepted, you will receive a ballot in every election until you request to be removed from the list or otherwise become ineligible. Your County Clerk will begin mailing ballots the 46th day before the election.
