The law makes special accommodations for individuals who have trouble getting to the polls because of incapacitating health reasons and/or who are hospitalized around Election Day. In this case, you may designate a person (your "agent") to pick up an absentee ballot, bring it to you and return it for you to your county auditor or city clerk. This is only allowed during the last seven days prior to the election and until 2 p.m. on Election Day. Your agent must return your absentee ballot to your local election official's office by 3 p.m. on Election Day for it to be counted.
In order to have an agent deliver your ballot, you must complete a Request for Agent Delivery of Absentee Ballot Form and an Absentee Ballot Application. You must have a preexisting relationship with your agent. The agent will use the completed forms to pick up a ballot, bring the ballot to you, and return your voted ballot to your county auditor or city clerk. Use the Election Official Directory to find your county auditor's contact information. Each agent is only allowed to deliver and return ballots for a maximum of three voters.
