As of May 20, 2021, Government Lamont issued Executive Order 12B, extending Executive Order 10E, which allows for the COVID-19 pandemic itself to be used as a valid reason for requesting an absentee ballot through June 30, 2021. This means any voter may vote via absentee ballot. To vote via absentee on June 3, you can answer yes to any of the following questions, or use “COVID-19” as the reason:
- Are you an active member of the armed forces of the United States?
- Will you be out of town during all the hours of voting on Election Day?
- Does illness prevent you from voting in person on Election Day?
- Do your religious beliefs prevent you from performing secular activities like voting on Election Day?
- Will you be performing duties as an election official at a polling place other than your own during all the hours of voting on Election Day?
- Do you have a physical disability that prevents you from voting in person on Election Day?
You can download the absentee ballot application from the Town’s website or contact the Town Clerk’s office for more information about receiving your absentee ballot. The Town Clerk’s office can be reached by phone, Monday-Friday, 8:30am through 4:30pm.
Please allow sufficient time to return your ballot, as only complete absentee ballots received before the close of polls on the day of the election will be counted. You must fill out the absentee ballot application and then receive the absentee ballot, complete the ballot, and return it to the Town Clerk’s office by 8:00 PM on Thursday, June 3.[View more voting information]
