A new law passed this year further expands eligibility for absentee voting.

Other reasons you are entitled to vote via Absentee Ballot include:
To learn more, visit the Secretary of the State's website here.
Voting via Absentee Ballot requires a TWO-STEP process:
1. You must first submit an application to receive a ballot.
2. Then you may vote using the ballot.
As of October 2022, you may also request your absentee ballot online. Request online here.
You can also contact your Town Clerk for an absentee ballot application OR you may download the application now from the Secretary of State's website. Follow the instructions CAREFULLY. If you have questions, please contact us.
Absentee Ballot Information:
Absentee ballots have already been mailed to anyone who returned an application.
When completing your ballot, FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS VERY CARFULLY.
You can return your completed ballot via mail or via drop off to the safe and secure ballot drop box in your town.
Delivery deadline for absentee ballots is 8 pm, either by mail or in the ballot drop boxes, on Election Day Tuesday, November, 8th 2022. Note: this is the DELIVERY deadline, not the postmark date if mailing your ballot.
If you are mailing your ballot or using the ballot drop box, you may check online to confirm it was received at https://portaldir.ct.gov/sots/LookUp.aspx
