Let your voice be heard, exercise your Constitutional Right

By MyCG Staff


There are only seven days until Election Day! If you have not requested or received your absentee ballot, you may still be able to vote.  

With about a week to go until Election Day, those who have not yet received their absentee ballot should fill out the Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot (FWAB). It works like a backup ballot. If your official absentee ballot arrives after sending in the FWAB, fill out and send in the official ballot too. Only one will be counted. 

You can use the backup ballot if you will not receive your regular ballot in time to send it back before the election. You will need a printer, and Adobe Read version 6.0 or higher and follow these steps:

  1. Fill in your choice
  2. Review
  3. Print it out
  4. Sign your ballot
  5. Send it in!
