Homeless Voters and Those Wishing Confidentiality
Voting When Homeless
are able to vote. The voter
must provide their current address of residence on the voter registration
form. Residence is considered to be the place where the voter sleeps. This
could include a shelter, a friend's home or other identifiable location. The mailing address of a person who is
homeless or who resides where mail service is unavailable can be the office of the
county clerk. The voter can always pick
up a ballot at the county elections office.
Voting If Concerned for Personal Safety
may choose not to register to vote because they don't feel safe disclosing
their home address. Under certain circumstances, a voter can register and vote
while maintaining their privacy. To maintain privacy, complete this exemption form (PDF) and return it to the county elections office, or ask a county elections official for more
information about this option.
