Vote at Home on Election Day
If you are sick or disabled a ballot can be
delivered to your home on Election Day. You may request an absentee ballot up until 5 p.m. on the day before the election.
Two justices of the peace (of
different parties) will deliver a ballot to you, and then will bring the ballot
back to the polling place so that it can be placed in the ballot box and
counted (on Election Day or the 8 days preceding the election).
Vote By Mail
Any voter can request that the town clerk mail them an early voter
absentee ballot. This ballot will arrive with a return envelope so that the
ballot, once voted, can be returned to the clerk so that it can be counted on
Election Day. The clerk must receive the ballot by the close of polls on
Election Day in order to be counted. A ballot can be requested any
time before an election. Clerks will mail absentee ballots within the 45 days prior to the election.
