With the November elections fast approaching interest in politics is at a high, following the last National Party Convention. Many folks will opt this year to send in absentee ballots for the presidential elections. But to do so, you will need to request for an absentee ballot by mail, and you can do that starting Monday. However, you can take your time when casting your vote. Final ballots must be returned to their county board of elections office on election eve, 5:00 pm November 1st. For general election voting, people are required to register at least 25 days prior to the date of the presidential election. That gives procrastinators until October 8th.
