VOTING BY ABSENTEE BALLOT
Any qualified elector who is unable or unwilling to appear at the
polling place on Election Day may request to vote an absentee ballot.
A qualified elector is any U.S. citizen, who will be 18 years of age
or older on Election Day, who has resided in the ward or municipality
where he or she wishes to vote for at least 28 consecutive days before
the election. The elector must also be registered in order to receive
an absentee ballot.
You must make a request for an absentee ballot in writing.
Contact your municipal clerk and request that an application for an
absentee ballot be sent to you for the primary or election or both.
You may also submit a written request in the form of a letter. Your
written request must list your voting address within the municipality
where you wish to vote, the address where the absentee ballot should
be sent, if different, and your signature. You may make application
for an absentee ballot by mail or in person.
Making application to receive an absentee ballot by mail
The deadline for making application to receive an absentee ballot by
5 pm on the fifth day before the election, October 30, 2014.
Note: Special absentee voting application provisions apply to electors
who are indefinitely confined to home or a care facility, in the
military, hospitalized, or serving as a sequestered juror. If this
applies to you, contact the municipal clerk regarding deadlines for
requesting and submitting an absentee ballot.

You may also request and vote an absentee ballot in the clerk’s office
