    • Fill out the form and return it to the District Clerk.  Applications that are mailed to the District Clerk must be received 7 days before the vote date.  Applications that are delivered to the District Clerk by the voter or a designee must be delivered by the day before the vote.
  2. Once an Application for Absentee Ballot is reviewed and accepted, an Absentee Ballot will be issued.  Completed and signed Absentee Ballots can be mailed or hand delivered by the voter or his/her designee.  In order for an absentee Ballot to be counted, it must be received by the District Clerk no later than 5:00 pm on the day of the vote,
