Bureau Of Elections
Mail-in & Absentee Ballots
Voters with an emergency occurring after the 5:00 p.m. deadline on the Tuesday before an election may apply for an emergency ballot.
Attention! Voters with disabilities who need assistance with Mail-in/Absentee Ballots
Voters with disabilities who need assistance applying for, picking up, or returning a mail-in or absentee ballot may use a “designated agent” to help them do so. A designated agent is someone who goes to the county election office on the voter’s behalf to effectuate the process of applying for, picking up, or returning the ballot. The agent may also return a ballot through the mail. Anyone with a disability, as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act, that prevents him or her from applying for, obtaining, or returning a mail-in or absentee ballot is entitled to use a designated agent.
Agents must bring the completed form to the Bureau of Elections Office in the Wayne County Courthouse to pick up a ballot on behalf of the voter. A time-stamped photocopy of the form will be returned to the agent. If the agent returns the voted ballot to the Courthouse, they must have the time stamped form attached to the outside of the mail-in/absentee ballot envelope.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Bureau of Elections Office at 570-253-5978 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
