If you're not already automatically getting ballots, you can, starting next Monday and through October 28th, can request a vote-by-mail ballot for the November 2nd election. To make it a permanent thing, just check the “PERMANENT VOTE BY MAIL STATUS” box on your next vote-by-mail ballot or download and fill out a Permanent Vote by Mail application (.pdf).
