Town Manager's Report - July 6, 2020

Absentee Ballots for August 11, 2020 Primary
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Lamont signed an executive order allowing all registered voters in CT to vote absentee in the August 11, 2020 primary. The Secretary of the State mailed each affiliated registered voter in the state an application that they will need to fill out and return in order to obtain an absentee ballot. That application was sent via USPS and included a postage-paid return envelope.

Windsor will also have a secure ballot drop box, located in the Town Hall Parking lot, to allow voters to deliver their absentee ballots in person without close personal contact. For those who would still like to appear in person to cast their vote, our seven polling locations will be open on August 11th.
