Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Governor Lamont signed an executive order allowing all registered voters in Connecticut to vote absentee in the August 11, 2020 primary.
Secretary of the State Denise Merrill mailed every registered Democrat and Republican voter in the state an application that they will need to fill out and return in order to obtain an absentee ballot. That application, which will be sent via U.S. Postal Service, will include a postage paid return envelope.
Beginning July 21, 2020, all voters who requested an absentee ballot will receive the ballots in the mail, which will also include a postage paid return envelope.
Southbury will also have a secure ballot drop box, located at the Town Hall, at the porch entrance to the Town Clerk and Tax Offices, to allow voters to deliver their absentee ballots in person without close personal contact.
For those who would still like to appear in person to cast their vote, our three polling locations will remain open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m..
