An absentee ballot must be received by the county election board before 7 p.m. on election day to be counted.
FROM THE BOARD OF ELECTIONS WEBSITE
Voters who become incapacitated after 5 p.m. on the Tuesday preceding an election may receive an absentee ballot through special emergency procedures. These voters must make a written request to the county election board. The request must be accompanied by a statement from a doctor that the voter is incapacitated and will be unable to vote in person on election day. The voter's request and the doctor's statement must be taken to the county election board office by a person the voter chooses. The person becomes the voter's "agent."
The county election board can provide a form to be used for both the voter's request and the doctor's statement.
The agent will receive the voter's ballot and will deliver it to the voter. After the voter marks the ballot, the agent must return it to the county election board office before 7 p.m. election day.

If a voter is physically incapacitated or caring for another that is incapacitated and cannot be left alone, then the voter can request an absentee ballot by mail, fax, electronic communication or by an agent. If a first responder is called away within 10 days of an election, then they can request an emergency absentee ballot that must be returned by 7 p.m. on Election Day.
