Residents have wondered whether they can vote by absentee ballot in the Nov 3 election, given the continued presence of Covid-19 virus.
After legislation was passed during the July special session, Connecticut residents were able to vote in the August primary via absentee ballot citing Covid-19 as their reason.
And, for the Nov 3 general election, voters will also be eligible to vote by absentee ballot due to COVID-19, pursuant to Public Act 20-03 July Special Sess. Just check the COVID-19 box on the application.
In mid September, the Secretary of the State (SOTS) will mail an application to all registered voters in Connecticut.
Once you receive the application, either mail it via United States Postal Service (USPS) or place it in a dedicated ballot drop box.
In Greenwich there are drop box locations at town hall and the public safety complex lobby.
Once completed, ballots can be mailed via US postal service or placed in one of the ballot drop boxes (Town Hall or public safety complex lobby).
For those planning to vote in person, polling locations will be open from 6:00 am to 8:00 pm.
General information about the absentee ballot process can be found on the Secretary of state website.
Additional information is available on the Greenwich Town Clerk webpage.
