Information on Absentee Ballots for August 11, 2020 Primary

Information on Absentee Ballots for August 11, 2020 Primary

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Ned Lamont signed an executive order allowing all registered Democrat and Republican voters in Connecticut to vote absentee in the August 11, 2020 primary. 

Secretary of the State Denise Merrill mailed every registered Democrat and Republican in the state an application that they

will need to fill out and return in order to obtain an absentee ballot. That application, which will be sent via U.S. Postal Service, will include a postage paid return envelope.

Beginning July 21, 2020, all voters who requested an absentee ballot will receive the ballots in the mail, which will also include a postage paid return envelope. The Town of Enfield will also have a secure ballot drop box, located next to the automatic door at the back of the town hall to allow voters to deliver their absentee ballots in person without close personal contact. 

For those who would still like to appear in person to cast their vote, our polling locations will remain open, however, the ability to vote absentee will ensure that the democratic process continues safely and securely.
