  • He won't be able to. He would have to vote where he is registered.

  • He needs to vote early or by absentee ballot - whichever your state allows. My hubby is a truck driver and he voted yesterday.

  • Lolosmom is incorrect, He needs to get an absentee ballot, however I don't know exactly what the dead line is to receive one. My brother is in Iraq, and he already voted. My father is on medical hold in Mississippi (he is Colorado) and he did the absentee thing as well.

  • I sent in my absentee ballot weeks ago. Unless he's coming home Monday, it's probably too late. You can call your local courthouse or maybe even chamber of commerce and find out for sure.

  • If he is registered he (or you) would have to have requested an absentee ballot for him which he could fill out and mail in, but it's too late now.

  • If he DID have an absentee ballot, it would, indeed, be too late to mail it in - BUT we can still bring our absentee ballots to certain locations, like a City Hall, which are collecting them now. You are good on the computer, look and find your state's voter department - in California it is the Secretary of State, Voter Division ... and they have phone numbers you can call with every question you need answered. ... It may be too late in your state to get hold of an absentee ballot, but in some states you can do things more quickly.

  • He should have asked for an absentee ballot. If he does have one, it must be in election official's hands no later than Tuesday. The post mark date does not matter - only when it is actually received.

  • He should have gotten an absentee ballot in his home state.

  • It's too late to send in an absentee ballot, I believe.
