Requirements for Absentee Ballots

Important: Check Your State Listing Carefully -- Each State Has Unique Mail Ballot Requirements.

Voting by Absentee Ballot is a particularly viable alternative for people who might have trouble getting to the polls or standing in long lines on Election Day. In some states the Voter ID requirements are less stringent for Absentee Voting than voting in person. Deadlines and requirements vary by state, so please check our Absentee Voting/Voter ID Requirements for more information.
