Absentee Vote in Your Home State  

Absentee voting (a.k.a "mail-in voting" and "by-mail voting") is conducted by mail-in paper ballot prior to the day of an election. Some states allow any registered voter to vote by absentee ballot (i.e. "no excuse absentee voting"). Other states require an excuse to vote by absentee ballot. Finally, some states require that absentee ballots be notarized or signed by a witness. In general, you can vote by absentee ballot if you will be able to vote in person on Election Day. If you're away at college, you can almost always vote by absentee ballot.

You will find absentee ballot applications for every state on TurboVote or Rock the Vote. These sites include deadlines, easy-to-follow-directions, and a breakdown of the relevant laws.
