CURBSIDE VOTING

 

If you are 65 or older or have a physical disability, you can vote curbside, in your car, at your polling location, on Election Day. Bring someone with you who can go into the polling location to request curbside voting assistance for you.

ABSENTEE VOTING

 

When you register to vote absentee, you get your ballot in advance. That’s why absentee voting is sometimes called early voting. You can vote absentee in person or by mail. And you can request an absentee ballot online, in person, or by mail. Requests for  a mail-in absentee ballot are due by 5 p.m. on Oct. 23, 2020.

Mail-in absentee ballots postmarked on or before Election Day and received by the General Registrar’s Office by noon of the third day after the election will be counted. You can also vote in person absentee by 5 p.m. Oct. 31, 2020.

Local Registrar’s Offices always offer in-person absentee voting. Due to Coronavirus, some localities offer additional locations to vote absentee

in-person, called Absentee Satellite Sites. Check with your Local Registrar to find out if there are satellite sites near you.

Accessible Voting

a disability is entitled to assistance

with voting, no matter which

method they use to do so.
