Never voted absentee? We'll show you how! Zoom in and find out how to:

A) Get an absentee ballot application if you didn't get one in the mail or can't find it.

1. Go here now to print one out: https://portal.ct.gov/-/media/SOTS/ElectionServices/COVID-19/ED-3-English-Rev-2020.pdf

B) Correctly fill out and mail in your absentee ballot application:

1. Check the box for your party so you get the correct ballot.
2. Check the box for COVID-19. The reason you are voting by
absentee.
3. Sign and date the form.
4. Be sure that the correct address appears in the return
envelope window. When you stuff your envelope the first time,
it's easy to do it wrong. You want your town government
address in the mailing envelope window.
5. Mail in your application or drop it in your town's new tamper
proof ballot drop-box and wait for your absentee ballot.

C) Tell your state legislators they must allow all eligible voters to vote safely and securely by mail using absentee ballots for the November general election!
