How do I obtain a Vote By Mail Ballot Application (formerly known as an Absentee Ballot)?
Anyone can Vote By Mail! The Clerk's Office has applications for a Vote By Mail Ballot, which may be picked-up or mailed to you, or you may go to the Essex County Board of Elections website http://www.essexclerk.com/Forms

You must be a registered voter in order to apply. A voter may apply for a Mail-In Ballot by mail up to 7 days prior to the election. They may also apply in person to the Essex County Clerk until 3 p.m. the day before the election. Note also that voters have an option of indicating on an application for a Mail-In Ballot that they would prefer to receive a ballot for each election that takes place during the remainder of the calendar year. Voters now have the option to automatically receive a Mail-In Ballot for each General Election. If such voter no longer wants this option, the Essex County Clerk's office must be notified in writing.
