Absent Voter Ballots 
The AV envelopes have changed.  Your AV ballots will now arrive in a white envelope with a BLUE stripe, and your return envelopes will be a white envelope with a PURPLE stripe. 

AV Ballot Deadlines:

  • 5:00 pm – Friday, November 4th:  Deadline to request an absentee ballot by mail and online
  • 10:00 am – Monday, November 7th:  Deadline to spoil your absentee ballot and request a new one
  • 4:00 pm – Monday, November 7th:  Deadline to request an absentee ballot in person at Clerk’s office – If you request your ballot on this day, you must vote in house, you may not take your ballot with you.

AV Ballots must be delivered to the Clerk's office - they will not be accepted at the polling locations. We have two 24-hour drop boxes available at the Public Safety Building (8350 Main St.) for AV Ballots – one outside along the entryway sidewalk, and one inside the office vestibule (first set of doors on the left-hand wall).  Both drop boxes are under video surveillance.

Any AV ballots received after 8:00PM on Tuesday, November 8, 2022, are not able to be tallied.  We are not responsible for delays in mail service, and CANNOT accept post marks.
