Can I take a ballot to deliver to a loved one who is in the hospital?

An individual who is in a hospital, health care facility, residential facility, shelter for battered women, assisted living facility, home bound, or would have difficulty getting to the polls because of incapacitating health reasons or a disability qualifies to request agent delivery of an absentee ballot.  

Up to seven days prior to Election Day, the individual must submit the Absentee Ballot Application (PDF) and also designate an agent by completing the Request for Agent Delivery of Absentee Ballot (PDF). Once we receive the completed forms and verify the identity of the agent, we can issue the ballot to the agent for delivery to the voter.  An agent can only receive and deliver ballots for up to three voters in any one election.  Ballots must be returned to the Little Canada City Center no later than 3:00 p.m. on Election Day.
