Ballots must be received by your county election office by 8 p.m. on May 18, which is primary election day. State officials say "postmarks are not enough."
For mail-in ballots, the Department of State says, "Any qualified voter may apply for a mail-in ballot. You may simply request this ballot without a reason."
For absentee ballots, the Department of State says, "If you plan to be out of the municipality on election day or if you have a disability or illness that prevents you from going to your polling place on election day, you can request this ballot type, which still requires you to list a reason for your ballot."
In order to request either ballot type, you must be registered to vote.
Tuesday is also the deadline to vote early in person.
