Voter Registration

You may register to vote in the annual election by completing a voter registration form and returning it to your county auditor.

Absentee Voting

If you are unable to cast a ballot on Election Day, you may be eligible to vote by absentee ballot. To vote by absentee ballot, a voter must request an absentee ballot application from the county in which they reside.

If a voter does not have a photo ID, they must sign a personal identification affidavit and will vote on a regular ballot.

Absentee Voting By Mail
