Ballots must be postmarked by Election Day in order to be counted.

Good News!  Madison County is now offering Permanent Vote By Mail.  This option will allow you to vote by mail in all subsequent elections held in Madison County. You will still have the option to vote by mail in a single election if you so choose.

You can apply for Permanent Vote by Mail Status using an online or paper application.
