You may apply one of the following ways:
- Print, complete and return a Permanent Vote-by-Mail Voter Application
- Submit a written request to the Clerk-Recorder’s Office via mail, fax or email. The request must state the following:
Applicant's full name,
Applicant's residence address,
Address where ballot is to be mailed, if different from the place of residence
Signature of the applicant.
Becoming a permanent vote-by-mail voter, you will receive your ballot in the mail before every election you are entitled to vote. If you do not vote in four (4) consecutive statewide general elections, you will need to reapply for permanent vote-by-mail status.
Please Note: Vote-by-Mail ballots are mailed out approximately 29 days before each election. If you are away from your residence/mailing address during this time, please be aware that the Post Office is prohibited by law from forwarding election materials. Your ballot will be returned to this office if you have a forwarding order on file.
If you have any questions regarding becoming a permanent Vote-by-Mail voter or would like an application sent to you, contact the Clerk-Recorder's Office.
