2)      Advance Vote by Mail – voters may request a ballot by mail upon completion of an advance ballot application.  Ballots will be mailed to voters beginning up to 20 days before the election.  Last day to apply for advance ballots by mail is 7 days prior to any election. Ballots must be postmarked or returned to the County Clerk’s office or polling location by the close of polls on Election Day.
