2. Which conditions are allowed as excuses for voting absentee?
a. Two things to note here.
1. The Secretary of State website lists 8 specific conditions determined by the CDC.
2. That said, the State Supreme Court ruled any condition determined by the voter to increase their personal risk or impact of COVID-19 is a valid excuse to vote absentee. Again, ruling extends to caregivers of persons with these conditions and may also use this excuse to request an absentee ballot.
Voters citing COVID-19 should choose from one of the above options on the absentee ballot request form based on whether they are personally at risk, or caring for someone at risk.
