Absentee Ballot Application – For a Referendum With Less Than 3 Weeks Notice (ANNUAL BUDGET)

An absentee ballot application for a Referendum with less than 3 weeks notice must be personally hand delivered to the Town Clerk’s Office by the voter or the person designated on the application.

Permanent Absentee Ballots

Public Act 12-57, “An Act Concerning Permanent Absentee Ballot Status for the Permanently Physically Disabled” created permanent absentee balloting status for certain individuals effective January 1, 2013. (CGS Sec 9-140e)

Eligibility

To be eligible for permanent absentee ballot status, a voter must file with the Town Clerk an absentee ballot application and a doctor’s certificate stating that they have a permanent physical disability and are unable to appear in person at their polling place.  The doctor’s note should be on the doctor’s letterhead. There is no prescribed form—the doctor’s note and absentee ballot application will satisfy the requirement of the law.

Permanent absent ballot status enables the voter to receive an absentee ballot for each election and primary in the municipality in which they are eligible to vote.  Absentee ballots are available 31 days prior to an Election and 21 days prior to a Primary.

In January of each year, the Registrar of Voters will send a written notice to each voter with permanent absentee ballot status to determine if the voter continues to reside at the address on the permanent absentee ballot application. If the voter fails to respond to the notice, the permanent absentee ballot status will be removed, but the voter will remain on the voter registration list.
