The Town Clerk has many responsibilities in administering Elections. Among these are:
- Absentee Ballots
- Nominating Petitions
- Candidate Certifications
- Justices of the Peace
- Campaign Financing
- Publication of Election notices
- The preparation and verification of various Election reports
Connecticut law allows you to receive an absentee ballot if you cannot appear at your assigned polling place on election day because of active service in the Military, absence from the town, sickness, religious tenets forbid secular activity on the day of the election, duties as an election official at a polling place other than your own during all of the hours of voting, or physical disability.
