Glastonbury DTC Applauds Expanded Absentee Ballots


The Secretary of State will be mailing all registered voters absentee ballot applications in advance of the 2020 General Election. The ongoing pandemic is a valid reason for all voters to apply for an absent ballot. Voters interested in mail-in voting should do the following:

  • Look for your absentee ballot application in the mail in mid-September.

  • Mail your completed absentee ballot application as soon as possible.

  • Look for your official absentee ballot in mid-October.

  • Return your ballot to the official dropbox at Glastonbury Town Hall, or mail it. Please be sure to allow for delays in the USPS. Do not mail your ballot more than 5 days in advance of the election. Return it instead to the official dropbox.
