Today is the last day to vote absentee for Tuesday's historic gubernatorial recall election.
Voting in person at your municipal clerk's office ends at 5 p.m. today. Absentee ballots returned by mail must be postmarked by Election Day Tuesday and received by the clerk's office by 4 p.m. June 8, according to the state Government Accountability Board.
Other things to keep in mind if considering voting absentee:
- You must be registered as a voter; if not, you will need to register first.
- You must fill out this form.
- A word of caution: absentee ballots will be entered into voting machines on Election Day just like votes cast in person at the polling sites. If the machines reject an absentee ballot because it was completed erroneously, that ballot will not be counted and there is not the opportunity to get a new ballot to try again.
