Permanent Absent Voter List
The absentee ballot application now features a checkbox that enables you to request to be added to the Permanent Absent Voter List. Requesting to be added to the Permanent Absent Voter List means that you will be added to the City's mass mailing list for absentee ballot applications prior to every election, being added to the list will not prevent you from voting in person in future elections if you should choose to do so.
