I will NOT be in Stamford on Election Day, how can I vote?

You may vote via an Absentee Ballot if you meet one of the following requirements:

  • Are you an active member of the armed forces of the United States
  • Will you be out of town during all the hours of voting on Election Day
  • Does illness prevent you from voting in person on Election Day
  • Do your religious beliefs prevent you from performing secular activities like voting on Election Day?
  • Will you be performing duties as an election official at a polling place other than your own during all the hours of voting on Election Day?
  • Do you have a physical disability that prevents you from voting in person on Election Day?

If you qualify under one of the requirements above, you can request an absentee ballot from the Town Clerk’s Office.

Absentee Ballot Request Forms from the SOTS

Please note – absentee ballot request forms must be filled out by the individual requesting the ballot. Assistance may be given, but the individual assisting must fill out section VII of the form.

🛑Parents, you cannot request on behalf of your college-aged children. They must fill out the form themselves.

You will mail in your absentee ballot request form to the Town Clerk, not the Registrars of Voters.

The Town Clerk will send you the ballot starting 31 days before a general election or 21 days before a primary (or as soon as the receive the request is received after the dates above)

📭Completed Absentee ballots typically require more than a regular stamp to mail back. If in doubt, take it to the post office to ensure proper postage.
