The Town Clerk issues Absentee Ballots. Registered voters who are unable to vote in person on Primary or Election Day may vote by Absentee Ballot. Please note that the Town Clerk’s Office handles the Absentee Ballots (Not the Registrar of Voters Office). A voter may request an Absentee Ballot Application at any time, however, the Absentee Ballot is not available until 21 days before the Primary or 31 days before the Election.
