Permanent Vote by Mail

How it Works

Firstly, any registered voter may become a Permanent Vote by Mail voter.

Permanent Vote by Mail voters do not need to apply for future elections. A ballot will automatically be mailed for each election in which voters are eligible to vote.

A voter's name shall be deleted from the Permanent Vote by Mail voter list if he or she fails to return a Vote by Mail Ballot for four (4) consecutive statewide general elections.

NOTE: The returned postage required for a Vote by Mail ballot is a single first-class stamp.
