									                      EARLY/ABSENTEE VOTING
If you are going to be out of the county in which you registered to vote on Election Day, you can
select one of two options to cast your ballot. As a registered voter, you can vote by mail or you
can vote early in person.

Vote By Mail

You can request an Application for Ballot by Mail from the elections administrator of the county
in which you are registered. This form must be submitted to your county’s elections
administrator before the close of business on the seventh day before Election Day. If the seventh
day is a weekend, the last day to submit the application is the preceding Friday. This year, the
deadline is Tuesday, October 28, 2008. The first day to apply for a ballot by mail is Friday,
September 5, 2008.

Vote Early In Person

You can cast your ballot by voting in person at an early polling location in the county in which
you are registered to vote. Early voting in person starts 17 days before each election unless the
first day falls on a weekend, then early voting begins on the following Monday and ends four
days before each election. This year’s early voting begins on Monday, October 20, 2008 and
ends on Friday, October 31, 2008. The list of early polling locations is available from the
elections administrator of the county in which you are registered to vote.
