If you are a United States Citizen living overseas or if you are in the Military, there are several different ways you can request, receive and return your ballot.

For more information about voting in the Military or when living overseas, visit the Federal Voting Assistance Program website.

Receiving Your Ballot

As a Military or overseas voter, you can receive your ballot by mail, fax or email. If you do not receive your ballot by 45 days prior to an election, please contact our office to make sure that we have your current information.

If we have not received your voter registration, you may need to complete a Federal Post Card Registration and Absentee Ballot Request or FPCA.

Returning Your Ballot

Mark your ballot using a dark ballpoint pen.

  • To vote for a candidate darken the oval completely.  Make no other marks.
  • To vote on any measure, darken the oval completely next to your choice.
  • If you make a mistake, you can request a replacement ballot by contacting our office.

2   Review Your Ballot

  • If you vote for more candidates than allowed or if you vote both Yes and No on a measure, your vote will not count for that candidate or measure.

  • Check both sides of the ballot for voting contests.
