MAT Teams Assistance for Voters in Care Facilities

A multi-partisan assistance team, or “MAT,” is a group appointed by a county board of elections to provide assistance with mail-in absentee voting and other services to voters living at facilities such as hospitals, clinics and nursing homes.

A MAT includes, at a minimum, two people who have different party affiliations (or, in the alternative, persons who were unanimously appointed by a bipartisan county board of elections.

If you request help from a MAT, you should receive impartial, professional assistance. Their job is to help you vote, but your voting choices will remain confidential.

MATs are authorized to help voters in the following ways, with specific legal requirements:

• Providing voter registration services

• Requesting an absentee ballot • Serving as an absentee witness

• Marking the absentee ballot • Sealing the ballot and completing the absentee application

• Mailing the voted absentee ballot in the closest U.S. mail depository or mailbox, if the voter has a disability
