GENERAL INFORMATION FOR EARLY VOTING BY MAIL
DEADLINES TO APPLY FOR AN EARLY VOTE-BY-MAIL BALLOT
Applications for ballots to be mailed to a voter must be received by the Town Clerk by 5PM on the 5th business day before an election. The deadline to apply for a ballot for the March 5, 2024 Presidential Primary Election is 5:00 PM on Tuesday, February 27, 2024. We recommend applying earlier than the deadline as the US Postal delivery services are not consistent and can range from 3 to 11 days.

Mailed ballots, for state elections, include a postage pre-paid return ballot envelope that is addressed to the Town Clerk's Office. You may return your ballot by mail (please see deadlines below) or hand deliver your ballot by placing it in the drop box outside of the Town Hall (deadline is close of polls on Election Day).

Voters who receive a vote by mail ballot but have not returned it prior to Election Day may appear to vote in person and cast a ballot on Election Day. Any voter that has returned a vote by mail ballot (or voted early in person) is not permitted to appear to vote in person on Election Day.
