How do I get an absentee ballot?

Eligible voters may request an absentee ballot for any reason at all!

In the 2018 election, voters approved a proposition to expand access to voting, including being able to vote absentee without having to give a reason. (It is still wise to apply 1-2 months prior to the election.)
