As of the posting of this notice, 3/24/2020, The state legislature has not yet acted to finalize the procedure for the 2020 Primary Election following its postponement on March 16th, and whether or how in-person voting may occur on June 2nd. In order to send a ballot by mail, our office must receive an application in writing. Each voter must either submit the application linked to this notice or write all of the information requested on this application on another sheet of paper and mail it to our office or leave it in the drop box beside our front door. The office is not currently open to the public, but we will receive phone calls and emails during normal business hours (9-4 M-F) and check the drop box multiple times daily. Absentee application forms may be requested via phone or email but the original form must be physically returned. We will not accept absentee applications via email or fax.
There is currently proposed legislation that would allow the Secretary of State’s office to mail absentee applications to all registered voters who have not already voted in the Primary Election and allow for prepaid postage on return of ballots, but it has not yet been voted on and may take a few days past the posting of this notice. More information will be released as it becomes available.
