A Vote-by-Mail ballot may be requested for specific elections, or for all elections through the end of the calendar year of the next scheduled general election.

A request from the voter must include their:

ALL written requests must be signed by the voter for whom the Vote-by-Mail ballot is for. This includes requests by fax or email.
If a voter has chosen an immediate family member or legal guardian to request a ballot in writing, the request must still be signed by the voter.
