For those voting by mail, the deadline to apply is March 14 by 5 p.m.; however, election officials urge voters to apply sooner than later.

Ballots have already begun being mailed out to those who requested to vote by mail, including Democratic vote-by-mail ballots, which had to be reprinted following the removal of a judicial candidate from the ballot last month, election officials said.
