Absentee Ballots

All Absentee Ballot requests must be made in writing and signed. Absentee ballots are sent out in the order in which requests are received. Please provide a phone number and/or email address in case a question arises as we prepare your ballot. Absentee ballot requests can be for a specific election date or for the rest of the calendar year. All absentee requests expire December 31st. When the voter receives the absentee ballot in the mail, the voter should mark the ballot, complete and sign the inner affidavit envelope and, as soon as possible, return the voted ballot (sealed inside the inner envelope) to the Town Clerk. Voted absentee ballots may not be brought directly to precinct polling places. Voted ballots may be returned by mail or dropped off by the voter or a family member at the Town Clerk's Office before the polls close. Ballots received after the polls close cannot be counted.

To qualify for an absentee ballot, you must:

  • Be away from your city/town on Election Day; or
  • Have a disability that keeps you from voting at your polling place; or
  • Have a religious belief that prevents you from voting at your polling place on Election Day

The deadline to request an absentee ballot is 5 pm on the fifth business day before the election. Please file your request early to allow time for your ballot to be mailed to you and for you to return your voted ballot so it reaches Town Hall by the close of polls to be counted.
