Chances are that anyone over the age of sixty-five is a committed long-time voter. This adds to the importance of making certain they submit a new voter registration form if moved to a new county, update address if moved within the county, or requested absentee ballot if the preferred means of voting.
To assist with online voter registration and absentee ballot request:
To assist with completing paper voter registration forms:
- For anyone unable or who would rather not register to vote online, have them complete the paper form and be sure it is mailed promptly to the county Board of Elections and Voter Registration listed on the back of the form. This mail-in voter registration form is available to download and print online.
- Allowing time for mailing and processing, check here to make certain the person has been registered. If not, check with the county BEVR to ensure that the form was received, or if possibly the writing was illegible or information missing.
- Again, once registered, absentee applications are available online (then can be downloaded, mailed, scanned and emailed, or faxed to the appropriate county BEVR) or by telephone. Note if by telephone, the absentee application (same as the one found online) is mailed to the voter for completion, which must then be returned to the BEVR before an absentee ballot is mailed.
To advise on voting procedures:
PLEASE NOTE: Any agency, residential housing provider, etc. may offer to assist with voter registration as well as obtaining an absentee ballot. It is very important that assistance in completing a ballot only be provided if and when the voter requests help.
