Learn about voting by mail
Click on a heading below:
If you are affiliated with the Democratic Party, you will automatically receive a Democratic mail ballot. If you are affiliated with the Republican Party, you will automatically receive a Republican mail ballot.
If you are not affiliated with a party (unaffiliated), your county clerk will mail you a letter several weeks before the election that will allow you to request either a Democratic or Republican mail ballot. You can also request either ballot at a polling location. Please note that Republican Party rules require you to affiliate with the party to request a Republican ballot.
If you are affiliated with a political party other than the Democratic or Republican Parties, you will not receive a mail ballot. However, you may change party affiliation prior to the election or contact your county clerk and request a Democratic ballot.
County clerks will mail ballots between February 11, 2020 and February 18, 2020. If you do not receive your ballot shortly after this time period, contact your county clerk immediately.
Your mail ballot must be postmarked by the Post Office by March 2, 2020— the day before the primary election. If you forget to postmark your ballot, you can drop it off on Election Day at a polling location, your county clerk’s office, or a ballot drop box.
If you are an active military member, a spouse or dependent of an active military member, or an individual living outside of the United States, you have several options to receive and send your ballot. Visit this page for more information.
No, mail ballots cannot be forwarded in the mail. If you need to change your address, please submit a new voter registration form.
