The three ballot types to choose from are:
1) Republican Party Presidential Primary Ballot;
2) Democratic Party Presidential Primary Ballot; or
3) Ballot without a Presidential Primary (LOCAL ISSUES ONLY).
The form also features the option to join the Permanent Absentee Voter List for future elections.
