If you qualify, you can request and return an emergency absentee ballot, through the end of voting hours on election day. There are 2 forms to fill out, the Emergency Application form and the Authorized Representative form (below). You will need to indicate which of these 4 reasons applies to you:

• I have or had an illness or physical disability that prevented me from applying for a non-emergency absentee ballot prior to the application deadline.
• I was unable to apply for a non-emergency absentee ballot or mail-in ballot by the deadline due to my business, duties, or occupation.
• I became physically ill or disabled after the deadline to submit an application for a non-emergency absentee ballot.
• I expect to be absent from my municipality on election day and I did not know that I would be absent prior to the application deadline for a non-emergency absentee ballot.

Last Minute Emergencies

In emergency situations (such as an unexpected illness or disability and last-minute absence) following the deadline at 5 p.m. on the Tuesday before the election, you can request an Emergency Absentee Ballot.

The deadline to submit your Emergency Absentee Ballot Application to the County Election Board is 8:00 pm on election day.
