Voting By Early or Absentee Ballot

Vote By Mail

Any voter can request that the Town Clerk mail them an early voter absentee ballot.  This ballot will arrive with a return envelope so that the ballot, once voted, can be returned to the clerk so that it can be counted on Election Day.  The clerk must receive the ballot by the close of polls on Election Day in order to be counted.  A ballot can be requested any time before an election. Clerks will mail absentee ballots within the 30 days prior to the election. 

Hand Delivered Ballots

A voter may pick up a ballot at the Town Clerk’s office at any time beginning thirty days prior to the general or primary election.  A voted early voter absentee ballot, in a sealed envelope, can be hand delivered to the clerk on Election Day or prior to Election Day.  The ballot can be returned to the clerk or delivered to the polling place by the voter or any person the voter authorizes to return the ballot for him or her.  A person can only pick up his or her own ballot from the clerk’s office.

Vote Early

      A Voter may vote at the Town Clerk’s office in person any time thirty days before a primary or general election or 20 days before a municipal election. 

Early voter absentee ballots must be returned to the Town Clerk’s office before the close of the office on the day before the election OR to the polling place before 7:00 p.m. on the day of the election in order to be counted in the election.
