|Absentee Voting - By Mail|
If you are unable to vote in-person at your polling place on election day (Tuesday, April 12th, 2022), you may be eligible to vote absentee by mail.

Waiting until the day before the election to request an absentee ballot will not guarantee that you receive the ballot in time to return it for counting.
