Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Governor Ned Lamont signed an executive order allowing all registered voters in Connecticut to vote absentee in the August 11, 2020 primary.
Secretary of State Denise Merrill mailed every registered Democrat and Republican in the state an application that they will need to fill out and return in order to obtain an absentee ballot.
According to the Greenwich Town Clerk’s office, that application which will be sent via US 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.
Greenwich will also have two secure ballot drop boxes: one located at the public safety complex lobby on Bruce Place and one located at the Town Hall guest parking lot at 101 Field Point Road. These will 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 votes, polling stations will remain open. However, the ability to vote absentee will ensure that the democratic process continues safely and securely.
