Early Voting By Mail

A registered voter is eligible for early voting by mail if the voter meets at least one of the following criteria:
  1. Out of the county. The voter will be out of the county of the voter’s residence on Election Day and during the hours of voting at the main early voting polling place during the part of the period for early voting by personal appearance remaining after the voter’s early voting ballot application is submitted to the city secretary. If the voter does not submit the application before early voting by personal appearance begins, the voter is ineligible for early voting by mail unless the voter is absent from the county when the application is submitted.
  2. Disability. The voter has an illness or physical condition that prevents the voter from appearing at the polling place on Election Day

    • Serving a misdemeanor sentence for a term that ends on or after election day;
    • Pending trial after denial of bail;
    • Without bail pending an appeal of a felony conviction; or
    • Pending trial or appeal on a bailable offense for which release on bail before Election Day is unlikely.
