Absentee Ballots Available At Town Hall

The town clerk’s office will be open this Saturday (November 3, 9 a.m. to noon, Town Hall room 105). These special hours will accommodate voters applying for an absentee ballot to vote in the November 6 election.

Absentee ballots are also available at the town clerk’s office Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (through Monday, November 5). Ballots must be returned to the town clerk’s office no later than 8 p.m. on Tuesday, November 6.

Registered electors may vote by absentee ballot for the following reasons:

  • Active service in the armed forces of the United States
  • Illness or physical disability
  • Religious tenets that forbid secular activity on the day of the election
  • Duties as an election official at the polling place other than their own during all of the hours of voting.
  • Absence from the town during all of the hours of voting.

  1. Thanks for posting Dan. It literally takes 5 minutes to vote absentee in person. Show ID, fill out ballot, put inside two envelopes. However, I would like to give everyone a heads up that there are two questions on the ballot as well. It may be helpful to study these before going in to vote, especially the second one that is difficult to understand in one reading.
