On August 10, 2020 - the Secretary of the State's office sent the following information regarding the process and timelines for November 3, 2020, General Election:
The Office of the Connecticut Secretary of the State sent out applications for absentee ballots to all eligible (active, registered) voters in early September.
Voters can check their registration status at myvote.ct.gov/lookup.
All voters are eligible to vote by absentee ballot for the November 2020 election by checking the COVID-19 excuse on the application.
Although absentee ballot applications WILL be mailed to every eligible voter, they are also available in English and Spanish at myvote.ct.gov/absentee.
If you have NOT received an Absentee Ballot application by the end of September, use the download link above to print an application and drop it off using one of the drop boxes.
Absentee ballots themselves CANNOT be distributed prior to October 2nd, by Connecticut law - the small amount of time between October 2nd and November 3rd makes it imperative that voters return their applications and their ballots as soon as possible.
IMPORTANT! TO ENSURE THAT YOUR ABSENTEE BALLOT WILL BE RECEIVED ON TIME, PLEASE PLACE YOUR BALLOT INTO BOTH THE INNER AND OUT ENVELOPES AND PLACE YOUR BALLOT INTO THE SECURE DROP BOX LOCATED IN YOUR MUNICIPALITY.
ONCE DEPOSITED IN THE SECURE DROPBOX YOUR BALLOT IS CONSIDERED RECEIVED BY YOUR MUNICIPALITY.
THE INCREASED NUMBER OF ABSENTEE BALLOT REQUESTS AND MAIL DELAYS MEANS IT IS MORE DIFFICULT TO CONFIRM RECEIPT OF YOUR APPLICATION AND YOUR BALLOT - PLEASE ALLOW EXTRA TIME BEFORE CALLING TO CONFIRM RECEIPT.
***UPDATE:*** GUIDANCE FROM THE SECRETARY OF THE STATE'S OFFICE ON SEPTEMBER 9, 2020 INDICATES THAT YOU MAY SUBMIT ABSENTEE BALLOT APPLICATIONS VIA THE DROPBOXES:
NORWICH CITY HALL - 100 BROADWAY
STANTON SCHOOL - 386 NEW LONDON TURNPIKE
GREENEVILLE PLAYGROUND - 266 CENTRAL AVENUE
WEQUONNOC SCHOOL - 155 PROVIDENCE STREET, TAFTVILLE
YOUR BALLOT MUST BE DEPOSITED IN THE SECURE DROPBOX NO LATER THAN 8 P.M. ON NOVEMBER 3, 2020 FOR THE GENERAL ELECTION.
***UPDATE*** ABSENTEE BALLOTS TURNED IN ON ELECTION DAY WILL BE HELD FOR VERIFICATION AGAINST THE CHECKOFF LISTS AFTER THE POLLS CLOSE
