This form serves as a ballot request for elections through the next even year November election. Example: If you submit this form in July 2011 you will receive ballots through November 2012.
- If the address you are providing for ballot delivery will be valid for an extended period and you want to be a Permanent Mail-In Voter you should include a comment to that effect in Box 6: Comments. This will keep your ballot request active indefinitely or until the Clerk’s office sends correspondence that is returned as undeliverable.
