Absentee balloting is available for those individuals who cannot vote in person for one of the following reasons: active service in the armed forces; absence from town during all hours of the referendum; physical disability; illness; or religious tenets.
An application must be delivered to the Town Clerk’s Office at which time the ballot will be given to the applicant. If the applicant is unable to come in person, he or she can designate a member of their family to pick up their ballot and return it to the town clerk. An application must still first be completed and delivered to the Town Clerk with the designation of a family member to hand carry the ballot. Since this referendum is being held with less than 3 weeks notice, absentee ballots cannot be mailed by the Town Clerk.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are designating someone to pick up your ballot, you can complete the application and file with the Town Clerk at any time. The ballot will then be issued to your designee on April 24, 2017.
