Permanent Absentee Ballots


Due to a change in the election laws, any elector who is permanently physically disabled, is entitled to receive an absentee ballot for every election or primary without reapplying.

To be eligible an elector must complete and sign an absentee ballot application and submit it together with a doctor’s note (on the physician's letterhead) that states you have a permanent disability and are unable to appear in person at your polling place. 

When the Town Clerk’s office has received an absentee ballot application with a doctor’s note an elector will then have permanent absentee ballot status. The Town Clerk’s Office will send absentee ballots to eligible electors for each election without having to reapply.

To receive a permanent absentee ballot:

  1. Obtain a note from your doctor (on the physician's letterhead) stating that you have a permanent disability.

  2. Print Absentee Ballot Application OR request that an application be mailed to you by contacting the Town Clerk’s Office.

  3. Complete and sign the application.

  4. Attach the doctor’s note to the completed application and mail to the Town Clerk’s Office at 501 Main Street South, Southbury, CT 06488.

You will then automatically receive a ballot in the mail for all future elections. You will also be notified of any referendums with procedures to follow to receive an absentee ballot.

For additional information call the Town Clerk’s Office at 203-262-0657.
