  • -Signatures are required on every application and ballot envelope and are verified against the signature on the voter registration file.
  • --Submitting applications by email is one option, but we hope that most votes will continue with the practice of delivery to our drop box or by mail- so our email server doesn’t become overwhelmed.
  • -You can track your application and ballot status at This site will show if and when we receive your application or ballot or when we mailed those to you.
  • -The Township offices are currently closed to the public. When residents are allowed into the office again, our lobby will be limited to one household at a time. We recommend calling or emailing with questions or requests.
  • -Absentee applications can be submitted until October 30 by mail or until November 2nd  in person, but we recommend doing this as early as possible to allow you to complete the process in time to have your ballot counted. Ballots must be received by 8:00 PM election day to be counted.
  • -Ballots cannot be forwarded if you are temporarily staying somewhere other than your residence indicate that address on your application.
