Absentee ballots are mailed 3 weeks before local (spring) elections and 47 days before national (fall) elections.
Find instructions on how to complete your absentee ballot here. Be sure to follow the instructions to ensure your ballot is counted.
Your completed absentee ballot must be delivered no later than 8pm on Election Day. The U.S. Postal Service recommends you mail back your absentee ballot at least one week before Election Day to arrive in time.

Fun fact: Early voting is also called in-person absentee voting.
