Absentee Ballot Eligibility

August 31, 2022

"Access to absentee ballots was expanded this year, so voters should be aware that they may now be eligible to vote by absentee ballot,” said Secretary Kohler. “Voters are eligible to vote by absentee ballot if they are unable to go to their polling place on Election Day because of absence from their town for a period of time on Election Day, because of a sickness, or because of a disability. This includes voters who are unable to go to their polling place because of a sickness or physical disability of another person, or because of the continued presence of a sickness, such as the COVID-19 virus.  Those providing service as a poll worker during all of the hours of voting in polling places other than their own are also eligible.


Electors with permanent disabilities are eligible for permanent absentee ballot status. Please email the Town Clerk for more information. 

The issuance of an absentee ballot is a two-step process. You may obtain an application at the Town Clerk's Office or download and print an absentee ballot in English or Spanish HERE.  Return the completed application to the Town Clerk in the town where you are registered to vote.  Once your application is processed, you will receive your ballot in the mail.
