  • Quincy MA City Hall 1305 Hancock St Quincy, MA, 02169 United States (map)

November 6, 2017 at 12:00 noon is the last day and hour to apply for an absentee ballot for the November 7, 2017 city election.

Voting by absentee ballot, per the MA Secretary of State website :
1.   Request an absentee ballot from Quincy City Hall in writing.
The MA Secretary of State has forms for the voter to make that request. 
There's also a form for a family member to make the request for the voter. 
You're not required to use the forms. You can send a signed letter requesting a ballot.

"Applications may be submitted in person, by mail, fax, or by e-mail; however, the local election official must be able to view the signature of the person requesting the ballot. If the application is being submitted by e-mail, a scanned copy of the request must be submitted."

2.    Once you receive your absentee ballot, fill it out and return it to Quincy City Hall.
"If you are voting by mail, you should be sure to submit your application in a timely manner. Please allow enough time for the ballot to be mailed to you and for you to return the ballot by Election Day. All ballots being mailed from inside the United States must be received by your local election official no later than the close of polls on Election Day."

"If you would like to vote in person, you may do so in the office of your local election official. In-person absentee voting should be arranged ahead of time."
