The Borough Clerk's Office has applications for Vote by Mail ballots (formerly absentee ballots).
Please keep in mind that if the voter applies for a vote by mail ballot, the voter must vote by mail, even if his/her plans change and he/she is able to vote at the regular polling location. A voter will not be allowed to vote at his/her regular polling location once he/she has applied for a vote by mail ballot.
