Any qualified Elector who is unable or unwilling to appear at the polling place on Election Day may submit a request to vote an absentee ballot to their Municipal Clerk. A qualified Elector is any U.S. citizen who:
- will be 18 years of age or older on Election Day; and
- has resided in the ward or municipality where they wish to vote for at least 28 consecutive days before the election.
The Elector must also be registered to vote to receive an absentee ballot. Proof of identification must be provided before an absentee ballot may be issued*.
