  • a U.S. citizen who will be at least 17 years old by election day
  • a resident of the county where they wish to serve
  • in good academic standing with the school where they are enrolled
  • have permission from a parent (or guardian/legal custodian)

    Join a Multipartisan Assitance Team (MAT)


    An impartial team called a "Multipartisan Assiantance Team (MAT) provides assistance to voters in our county by helping them to request and cast their mail-in absentee ballots! These teams visit facilities, such as nursing homes, to provide assistance to voters who may not have a near relative or guardian nearby. The MAT is comprised of, at minimum, two voters who are affiliated with different political parties.
