What are the deadlines for requesting an absentee ballot?

If you request an absentee ballot in person, you must request it not more than forty (40) days and not less than one (1) day prior to the date of the election. If you request an absentee ballot by mail within the U.S., you must request it no later than five (5) days prior to the election date. If you request an absentee ballot by mail outside of the U.S., you can receive a full ballot if you request it at least thirty (30) days prior to the election, or a federal ballot only if you request it at least ten (10) days prior to the election.
