Absentee Ballots


Due to COVID-19, the Secretary of the State will mail an Absentee Ballot Application to every registered voter by mid-September. Pursuant to PA 20-3, COVID-19 may be used as a valid reason for requesting a ballot. To receive your Absentee Ballot for the Presidential Election, complete and sign your Application and return to the Southbury Town Clerk. The Absentee Ballots will be mailed by Southbury Town Clerk's office beginning October 2, 2020.

Obtaining an absentee ballot is a two-step process:

  1. First, you must complete an application which must be verified by the office of the Town Clerk
  2. Then an absentee ballot will be issued to you.

Any person who will distribute five (5) or more absentee ballot applications to persons other than the individual's immediate family must register and obtain forms from the Town Clerk of the municipality where such forms will be distributed before distributing such forms.

Steps to Vote by Absentee Ballot:

  1. Complete the Ballot Application.
