If you would like to be added to the City's permanent absentee voter list, please contact the City Offices or fill out a Permanent AV Form If qualified, you will receive an absentee voter application before each election and be given the option to vote with an absentee ballot or in person.
A person who registers to vote by mail must vote in person in the 1st election in which he or she participates. The restriction does not apply to overseas voters, voters who are handicapped or voters who are 60 years of age or older. (Voting in person on 1 governmental level clears the restriction on the other levels. For example, if a voter subject to the restriction votes in person at a school election, the voter would be free to obtain an absentee ballot for the 1st state election in which he or she wishes to participate.)
Emergency Absent Voter Ballot
If an emergency, such as a sudden illness or family death prevents you from reaching the polls on Election Day, you may request an emergency absent voter ballot. Requests for an emergency ballot must be submitted after the deadline for regular absent voter ballots has passed, but before 4 p.m. on election day. The emergency must have occurred at a time that made it impossible for you to apply for a regular absent voter ballot. The City Clerk will explain more about emergency absent voter ballots.
