Need to Vote ABSENTEE?
We've collated the information you need to request and receive an absentee ballot to vote in CT elections.
Connecticut law allows you to receive an absentee ballot if you cannot appear at your assigned polling place on election day because of:
active service in the Military,
absence from the town during all of the hours of voting,
religious tenets forbid secular activity on the day of the election,
duties as an election official at a polling place other than your own during all of the hours of voting,
or physical disability.
The State of Connecticut has determined that the existence of the COVID-19 virus allows you to vote by absentee ballot if you so choose for your own safety.
To receive your absentee ballot please complete and sign an application and return it to the Town Clerk.
Absentee Ballots of Other Types
For a referendum with less than 3 weeks’ notice, please use the following (please note these ballots can not be mailed to you):
English Application for Referendum with less than 3 weeks' notice
Spanish Application for Referendum with less than 3 weeks' notice
The absentee ballot application, which is accessible by screen readers, includes a check box to indicate that the voter has a print disability. The Town Clerk will send the ballot envelopes WITHOUT a ballot to the voter and the Secretary of the State will e-mail an accessible ballot to the voter. The voter will fill out the ballot using their screen reader, print it, and return it in the provided envelopes. The inner envelope must be signed but it is OK if the signature is not in the correct spot.
