Agent Delivery

The following voters may authorize an agent to pick up and return an absentee ballot for them:

  • Patients in hospitals, residential treatment centers, and nursing homes
  • Residents of group homes
  • Residents of battered women's shelters
  • Residents of assisted living facilities
  • Voters who are disabled
  • Voters who would have difficulty getting to the polls because of incapacitating health reasons

In order to have an agent pick up and deliver your ballot, you must complete the Request for Agent Delivery of Absentee Ballot Form and the Absentee Ballot Application. You must have a pre-existing relationship with your agent. The agent will use the completed forms to pick up a ballot, bring the ballot to you, and return your voted ballot to the county elections office. Each agent is only allowed to deliver and return ballots for a maximum of three voters. This activity may only occur the seven days preceding an election. Ballots can be picked up until 2:00 p.m. on Election Day, and voted ballots must be returned by 3:00 p.m. on Election Day.
