En español | Voters in several states are running out of time to request an absentee or mail-in ballot for their upcoming primary elections. In some states, like New Jersey and Virginia, any registered voter can cast an absentee ballot without providing a reason. And in states like Utah and Oregon, the vast majority of voters cast their ballots through the mail.

But in other states, like Kentucky and New Hampshire, mail ballots are available only to certain people, including those who have a disability. Check our guide to voting in your state to see if you’re eligible to cast an absentee or mail-in ballot.

Upcoming absentee or mail-in ballot request deadlines:

  • Delaware: Friday, Sept. 9, is the last day to request a ballot before the Sept. 13 primary.
  • New Hampshire: Monday, Sept. 12, is the last day to request a ballot before the Sept. 13 primary.
