The 2020 General Election will be on Tuesday, November 9th. Because of the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, Secretary of State Denise Merrill has announced she will be mailing absentee ballot applications to all registered voters in advance of the 2020 General Election. COVID-19 is a valid reason for all voters to apply for an absentee ballot.
Absentee ballot applications should arrive sometime in mid- to late-September. If you do not receive your application, you can request one from the Secretary of State here.
Once you receive your application, fill it out and return it to the Town Clerk. Your absentee ballot will be mailed to you in mid-October.
Upon filling out your absentee ballot, you can either mail it to your Town Clerk or return it to the official Election Dropbox at Town Hall. Please note, cuts at the USPS may cause delays with the mail. To be safe, you should drop your ballot at the Town Hall if you are returning it within five (5) business days of the General Election.
The 2020 General Election provides us all with the opportunity to elect a great slate of Democrats to federal and state office, including:
President: Joe Biden
Vice President: Kamala Harris
US Congress (1st District): John Larson
US Congress (2nd District): Joe Courtney
State Senate: Steve Cassano
State Representative (13th District): Jason Doucette
State Representative (31st District): Jill Barry
This election is truly like none other. Concerns around COVID-19 have changed our normal routines. The Glastonbury DTC is still running a robust campaign, but with social distancing protocols in place and a greater emphasis on awareness around absentee ballots.
