request an absentee ballot in person at the
office of their election authority beginning
September 23.
However, not every election office in every
county has the ballots printed and ready
for distribution precisely on the date stated
by law - 40 days before the election.
Locations designated as permanent Early
Voting Centers across the state will be
open from Monday, October 11 (Columbus
Day) through Thursday, October 28. They
also will be open on the weekends of
October 16-17 and October 23-24.
Early Voting locations designated as
temporary will be open October 12-28.
