The Presidential Primary has been postponed from April 28th to June 2nd, 2020.  The Town Clerk's office will honor all previously received absentee ballot applications for the June 2nd primary.  If you have already completed and submitted an application, you do not need to complete a new application.   

Additionally, all previously received military/overseas applications and any voted ballots that may have been returned will be honored.

The deadline has past for registered Republican/Democrat/Independent*/Green Party/or other minor party voters to switch party affiliation in order to vote in the June 2nd primary.
The deadline for new voters, and for unaffiliated voters, to enroll in a party for voting in its primary is May 28th. For new voters, mail-in applications must be postmarked, or received at Town Hall by May 28th. For unaffiliated voters, the mail-in application must be received (not merely postmarked) by May 28th.  There is a drop box at the Main Street entrance of Town Hall for your convenience.
The in-person enrollment deadline, for new voters and unaffiliated voters enrolling in a party (in person), is June 1st at noon. Please use the drop box at the Main Street entrance of Town Hall.

*What is the difference between being an Independent voter and an Unaffiliated voter? In CT, there is a minor party called the Independent Party.  If you are registered as an Independent, you belong to that party and the deadline has past in order to switch to another party and participate in the June 2nd Primary.  If you are Unaffiliated, you do not currently have a party and cannot vote in either the Republican or the Democratic primaries. This is because in CT, we have a closed primary system. Many states are open. We are not.
