Where to Vote
On Election days, the polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. There are three precincts in Marysville and voting takes place at the following locations:

If you are unable to vote at the polls on Election Day, or want to vote by mail, you can apply for an Absent Voter Ballot ( A.V. Ballot). There are six reasons that will enable you to vote by mail:
- If you will be absent from the community in which you are registered the entire time the polls are open.
- If you are physically unable to attend the polls without the assistance of another.
- If you cannot attend the polls because of the tenets of your religion.
- If you have been appointed an election precinct inspector in a precinct other than the precinct where you reside.
- If you are 60 years of age or older.
- If you cannot attend the polls because you are confined to jail awaiting arraignment or trial.
