Town Clerk Laura Brennan would like to remind all registered voters that absentee ballots for the Nov. 5 municipal election are now available at the Town Clerk’s Office.
To qualify for an absentee ballot, an elector must be unable to appear at the required polling place during all hours of voting for one of the following reasons: Active service in the armed forces of the United States; absence from the town of voting residence during all of the hours of voting; illness; religious tenets, which forbid secular activity on the day of the election; duties as an election official at a polling place other than his/her own during all of the hours of voting; or physical disability.
Applications are available at the Town Clerk’s Office, online on the Secretary of the State’s website www.sots.ct.gov or by calling (203) 271-6601.
The Town Clerk’s Office will be open on Saturday, Nov. 2, at 84 South Main St., from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. for anyone needing an absentee ballot. In order to be counted, the Town Clerk must receive ballots by 8 p.m. on Election Day.
