You can vote early by using an absentee ballot, instead of voting in person at the polling place on Election Day. You can vote absentee by mail, in person, or by having a person you know pick up and deliver your ballot for you. Beginning with the August 9, 2016 Primary Election, any voter may vote absentee.
Absentee ballots are available 46 days before an election. In 2018, ballots will be ready starting June 29 for the Primary Election (August 14); and September 21 for the General Election (November 6).
You are now able to request an "Absentee Ballot" online through the Secretary of States website. Click the link below to the Secretary of State website and it will walk you through this process as well as give you information to vote absentee by filling out and mailing, faxing or emailing your Absentee Ballot Application to the Pine County Auditor's Office.
