    on election day

  • Permanently and totally disabled

    A voter may apply for an absentee ballot by completing an Absentee Ballot Application (see below) and mailing the application to the Somerset County Clerk by US mail up to 7 days prior to the election. A voter may also apply in person to the County Clerk until 3:00 p.m., the day before the election. The County Clerk cannot accept faxed copies of an Absentee Ballot Application since an original signature is required.  See also:  Absentee Voting FAQ's.
