Submittal Period for Annual ABBM and Length of Validity
Q: When may a voter that qualifies for an Annual ABBM submit their application?
A: Voters may begin to submit Annual ABBMs on or after January 1 of the calendar year in which the voter wishes to receive ballots. [§ 86.0015]
Q: How long is the Annual ABBM valid?
A: The Annual ABBM is valid from the time the early voting clerk receives it until the end of the calendar year or until the voter submits a change in registration information. Thus the Annual ABBM expires on December 31 of the year in which it was submitted, regardless of when it was submitted to the early voting clerk. [§ 86.0015(b)]
Q: May voters submit an Annual ABBM anytime throughout the calendar year?
A: Yes. Voters may submit an Annual ABBM anytime during the calendar year. [§ 86.0015(b)] However, an Annual ABBM must be received at least 11 days before the first election in which the voter seeks to request a ballot by mail. [§84.007(c)].
