I will be out of town when ballots are mailed. How do I get a ballot?

Absentee ballots are available 45 days before the election. You may request an early absentee ballot from your county elections office either in person, by mail, or by fax.

You may apply in person, by mail, or by fax and must include:

  • Your residence address.
  • The address to which the ballot should be mailed.
  • Which election, or if all elections you wish for an absentee ballot.
  • Your signature.

Your voted ballot must be received by your Lincoln County Clerk or a designated drop site by 8 pm on election day.

Please note: Must have election day postmark on your envelope.

After the 5th day before the election, the county elections office is not required to mail absentee ballots. However, you may vote in person at your county elections office through election day.
