Safe at Home

Voting & Domestic Violence


Participation in the Safe at Home program allows eligible voters to apply to vote as an absentee voter. The participant’s confidential address will not appear on any list of registered voters made available to the public. Voter registration requests are deemed a permanent absentee ballot request. After becoming a participant in the program, and having received your signature card, the Secretary of State’s Office acts as the appropriate county clerk for purposes of voter registration. Participants can apply in person at the Secretary of State’s Office or by mailing a voter registration card.

A random identifier and verification code will be issued to the Safe at Home participant prior to an election. The identifier will serve in the place of the required voter identification and the verification code will be used instead of the voter’s signature.

Will any of my personal information be released?

No, we will not disclose residential address, delivery address telephone number or email address of a participant unless the information is required to be disclosed pursuant to a court order.

Who will have access to my information?

Access to all Safe at Home program records are restricted to Secretary of State staff members who are approved to access the records.

How do I vote?

The voter shall vote exclusively by mailed absentee ballot or mailed ballot. In each election that the voter-participant is eligible to vote, the Secretary of State’s Office (in collaboration with the applicable County Clerk) shall send a mailed absentee ballot or mailed ballot to the voter-participant without requiring a request or application to receive a ballot.
