The affidavits on the application and the ballot envelope must be signed. These affidavits attest to the accuracy of the information provided on the application. The affidavit on the envelope attests that the absentee voter is voting his own ballot in secret.
If the voter receives assistance in voting his absentee ballot, the name and address of the person giving the assistance must be placed on the ballot certification envelope. Remember that a candidate is NOT allowed to assist an absentee voter, unless the candidate is a spouse, parent, child, or sibling of the absentee voter.IMPORTANT
