Absentee Ballot Information
Absentee ballots are issued by the Town Clerk's Office to eligible voters for all elections, primaries, and referenda. (Special restrictions may be in effect during a referendum.) Registered voters who are eligible to vote by absentee ballot include those persons:
who are ill;
who are physically disabled;
who are serving in the military;
who are out-of-town on election day;
who are serving as poll workers in a district other than their own; and those
whose religion forbids secular activity on election day.
Absentee voting is a two-step process.
First, you must fill out an Absentee Ballot Application and return it to the Town Clerk. Upon receipt and approval of the application, a ballot will either be handed to you in person or it will be sent to you as soon as State Law allows.
Second, you must execute your ballot and return it to the Town Clerk by the close of polls in order for your vote to count.
