Does the voter have to take the oath after they turn 18 before the vote can be counted?

Hello Julie,

 

You can mail the ballot to the voter now. Voter’s who are 17 can register and vote as long as they will turn 18 on or before the General Election.

Hi, I received a request to mail an absentee ballot to a resident who registered in February but will not turn 18 until October 24th.

Can I mail out the ballot now, or do I have to wait until October 24th?

Thank you.
