Permanently Disabled Vote by Mail Program

If you are a registered voter who has a permanent disability or physical incapacity of such a nature as to make it improbable that you will be able to be present at the polls at any future election, you may enroll in the Permanently Disabled Vote by Mail Program.

An Application for Identification Card by an Elector Who is Permanently Disabled/Affidavit of Attending Physician form must be completed (also signed by the voter's doctor) and submitted to the Election Division in order to be enrolled in the program.

Once enrolled in the program, the Election Division automatically sends an Application for Vote by Mail Ballot by an Elector who is Permanently Incapacitated form and ballot to the voter for every election held in the five-year period following enrollment in the program.

Healthcare Facility Voting

Election Judges conduct voting at licensed healthcare facilities on the Saturday before an election.  To qualify to vote at that time residents must be registered to vote and submit a Vote by Mail ballot application by Friday the week before healthcare voting takes place.  For complete information on healthcare voting procedures, contact the Healthcare Vote by Mail Department at (630) 407-5609.
