Military & Overseas Voters

On the move? We need to know. 

Each election, ballots are returned undeliverable because we no longer know where you live or are stationed. 

We want your ballot to reach you and we want you to vote! Please keep your mailing address up to date.

If you will be gone during an election, here are a few ways you can get a ballot:

Military and overseas voters are automatically mailed ballots 45 days prior to every primary and general election and 30 days prior to every special election.

To make sure your vote counts, please read the voting alternatives outlined below.
