I received a mail-in ballot application but want to vote in person, what do I need to do?

If you receive a 2021 Mail-In or Absentee ballot application and want to vote in person, you can simply dispose of the application. No further action is required on your part. You will be able to vote in person on a standard ballot at your assigned polling location on Election Day. Ballots are only mailed to registered voters who apply for them. 

If you’d like to be removed from the annual application mailing list, you must complete this form and mail it to our office. 

Ballots for the May 18th Primary will begin to be mailed in April 2021.

If you have already received your ballot and decide that you would rather vote in person at your assigned polling location, you can bring your ballot & the envelopes to the polls with you. You will give your ballot & envelopes to a Poll Worker and they will void it for you; enabling you to vote in person.

The Poll Workers will be able to tell who has requested a mail-in ballot, so if you forget to bring your mail-in ballot & envelopes with you so that it can be voided you will be given a provisional ballot to complete at your polling location. This ballot will only be counted once we verify that your mail-in ballot has not been received by the Election Board.
