CAST YOUR BALLOT EARLY FOR THE UPCOMING ELECTION!
Simply follow the link below to download an application to cast an absentee ballot by mail or in person to avoid the extremely long lines anticipated on election day Tuesday, November 4, 2008! This is better than ADVANCE VOTING which can be done the week preceding the election because lines will be long that entire week.
NO REASON IS REQUIRED TO APPLY FOR AN ABSENTEE BALLOT - THAT MEANS YOU DO NOT HAVE TO GIVE A REASON WHY YOU WANT AN ABSENTEE BALLOT!
