Voter Registration

The steps to register to vote are shown HERE


You can get registration forms online HERE


If you register online, by mail, or by registration event you will need ID the first time you vote. If you intend to absentee vote and are newly registered , then please note:

State law requires all voters registering for the first time either by mail, web, voter registration drive or other type of event to visit their local Clerk's office or Secretary of State's branch office and show their State issued photo ID in order to remove the "Verify ID" statement on their voter file and receive the ability to receive an absentee ballot by mail.  Without completing this action voters need to vote in person on the day of the election.


Absentee Voting Available!

Absentee voting ins now available to all eligible and registered voters.  Any voter may request an absent voter ballot without providing a reason!  Requests for an absentee ballot must be received by your clerk no later than the Friday before the election.   To obtain Absentee Voting Forms click HERE (
