Absentee Ballots

Ballston Dems logo If you will not be available to vote in November you should apply for an absentee ballot so your vote will count. The first step to vote by absentee ballot is to get an application for an absentee ballot.  Download it at http://www.saratogacountyny.gov/upload/absenteeballot.pdf or click on the link on this page. Any person who is expected to be out of town may vote by an absentee ballot.  This includes members of the military, family members on vacation or away on business, college students attending college out of the area.
