It’s Not Too Late To Be A Permanent Absentee Voter for the Primary Election

Be a Permanent Absentee Voter

This year, there are many important elections whose outcomes can affect faculty and the rest of our state. If you have already registered, consider signing up as a permanent absentee voter.  It’s a convenient way to vote by mail, especially for faculty who may be too busy to get to the polls. 

When you sign up to be a permanent absentee voter, you’ll receive your ballot in the mail for this and future elections. You should expect to receive your absentee ballot in the mail after the August 4, 2012 submission deadline.
 
Absentee ballots are ideal if you’re out of town and can’t vote on Election Day.  Click here to download a permanent absentee ballot application.
