Vote Absentee

Absentee voting by mail is a convenient way for citizens who are registered to vote to cast their ballots if they are unable to vote during the early voting period, and cannot vote at their polling place on Election Day. Absentee voting is especially convenient for students who are attending a college or university out of state and are registered to vote in their home state. Remember, you cannot register in more than one state!
