Absentee ballots are issued by the Town Clerk’s office. There is an application process first, then if all is in order, the ballot may be issued. Ballots are returned to the Town Clerk for delivery to the polls. There is a strict accounting of all absentee ballot applications and absentee ballots issued.
The Connecticut Secretary of State Absentee Voting page explains the absentee voting laws.
