It's likely we will be voting by mail in the primary on August 4 and the general election on Nov. 3. If the polls are open you can take your absentee voter ballot to the polls and it will be counted as a regular ballot. So, there is no reason we don't all get an absentee voter ballot, fill it out, and send it to our clerk, or take it to the polls on election day. No reason not to request to be on the permanent absentee voter application list.
