Absentee Voting By Mail

Orange County offers absentee voting by mail to all registered Orange County voters who wish to vote by mail rather than at a one-stop early voting site or on Election Day.

All by-mail civilian absentee ballot requests must be submitted on the State Absentee Ballot Request form and must have an actual signature.
