The last day to apply for a civilian absentee ballot is 5:00 PM on the Tuesday before the election (Oct. 30th) - please note that POSTMARKS DO NOT APPLY and that ORIGINAL APPLICATIONS must be received (no facsimiles or emails).
Don't wait-do it early! If you need to vote absentee and have the time, you can go to the Board of Elections, fill out the absentee ballot application, get a ballot and take it to the "voting room" they have set up. The official will check to make sure you are an eligible voter. You hand the person your ballot and bingo, you have voted. ALSO... you can take the absentee ballot you received in the mail to the same place and turn it in following the same procedure.
YOU CAN VOTE NOW UNTIL OCTOBER 30.
