The City Clerk’s Office strongly encourages absentee voters to take the following steps to make sure their ballot is counted:

  • Read the step-by-step instruction letter that you receive with your absentee ballot.
  • Sign the certificate envelope on the line marked “Signature of Voter.”
  • Have your witness sign the certificate envelope on the line marked “Signature of Witness.”  It is perfectly acceptable if your witness is your spouse or significant other.
  • Have your witness write their address underneath the witness signature (street number, street name, municipality, state, zip code).
  • Seal the envelope.
  • Mail your absentee ballot back to the Clerk’s Office as early as possible. The ballot must be returned to City Hall 8:00 pm on Election Day.
  • If you have moved, register to vote at your new address. Crossing out the address on your absentee label and writing in your new address does not update your voter registration.
  • Vote absentee in the Clerk’s Office or at an In-Person Absentee Voting location.

 Absentee ballots are rejected for the following reasons:

  • Voter has not signed absentee certificate envelope.
  • Voter has not had a witness sign the absentee certificate envelope.
  • Witness did not write address on absentee certificate envelope (street number, street name, municipality).
  • Ballot has not been received by Election Day.
  • Voter has not registered to vote at their current address.
  • Voter has not sealed the absentee certificate envelope.
  • Voter dies before Election Day.
