Any qualified elector who is unable or unwilling to appear at the polling place on Election Day may request to vote an absentee ballot.

The elector must also be registered in order to receive an absentee ballot.

Observers

Only observers from each of the two recognized political parties whose candidates for governor or president received the greatest number of votes in the municipality at the most recent general election may accompany the deputies to each facility where absentee voting will take place. The observers may observe the process of absentee ballot distribution in the common areas of the home, facility, or complex. Each party wishing to have an observer present shall submit the name of the observer to the clerk no later than the close of business on the last business day prior to the visit. Family members of residents may be present at the time of voting.
