Any qualified elector who is unable or unwilling to appear at the polling place on Election Day may request to vote an absentee ballot.  A qualified elector is any U.S. citizen, who will be 18 years of age or older on Election Day, who has resided in the ward or municipality where he or she wishes to vote for at least 28 consecutive days before the election.  The elector must also be registered in order to receive an absentee ballot.  Proof of identification must be provided before an absentee ballot may be issued. 


You must make a request for an absentee ballot in writing.


Contact your municipal clerk and request that an application for an absentee ballot be sent to you for the primary or election or both.  You may also submit a written request in the form of a letter.  Your written request must list your voting address within the municipality where you wish to vote, the address where the absentee ballot should be sent, if different, and your signature.  You may make application for an absentee ballot by mail or in person.


Making application to receive an absentee ballot by mail


The deadline for making application to receive an absentee ballot by mail is:

5 pm on the fifth day before the election, August 6, 2020


Note:    Special absentee voting application provisions apply to electors who are indefinitely confined to home or a care facility, in the military, hospitalized, or serving as a sequestered juror.  If this applies to you, contact the municipal clerk regarding deadlines for requesting and submitting an absentee ballot.


Voting an absentee ballot in person


You may also request and vote an absentee ballot in the clerk’s office or other specified location during the days and hours specified for casting an absentee ballot in person.

Appliances, furniture, rolls of carpet, electronics and any hazardous waste items are NOT accepted. Please do no use plastic bags for paper/cardboard as they cause problems with equipment. The Town encourages recycling. Place glass, steel cans, plastic #1 and #2 and aluminum cans in the containers provided by the town for these items. Please crush or flatten plastics to save on space – often bins become too full of recyclables. We encourage everyone to separate their aluminum cans from the other recyclables and place them in the receptacle for the Good Luck 4-H Club.
