Request your absentee ballot for the August 9, 2022 primary election!

Friends,

In Connecticut, absentee ballots for the August 9th, 2022 primary election became available for request on Tuesday, July 19th! You can find everything you need to know using our online resource. >>

Remember, only active registered voters who are also registered as Democrat or Republican through the Voter Registrar can vote in that party’s primary election.

You can vote using an absentee ballot if you cannot appear at your assigned polling place on election day for specific reasons–one of them being sickness. “Sickness” is now determined by the voter on an ongoing basis and can include, for example, fear of contracting covid-19.

Commuters can now vote by absentee ballot even if their work and commute hours do NOT make them absent for ALL the hours between 6AM and 8PM on election day. These are steps forward for democracy–please take advantage of them if they can help you get out to vote!

Just download an absentee ballot application, print it, fill it out, sign and date it. Then send the application to your Town Clerk by mail, drop it off in a secure absentee ballot drop box or drop it off to the Town Clerk’s office in person. You can find everything you need to know using our online resource. >>
