The Somers Town Clerk’s office has been notified that some campaigns will be sending absentee ballot applications to many registered voters in Somers. Connecticut Law allows you to receive an absentee ballot if you cannot appear at your assigned polling place on Election Day because of any of these reasons:
- My active service in the Armed Forces of the United States
- My absence from my town of residence
- My religious tenets forbid secular activity on the day of the election
- My duties as a primary, election or referendum official at a polling place other than my own during all of the hours of voting
- Physical disability
Applications must be signed by the voter requesting the ballot. Anyone assisting a voter in filling out the application must also sign and include their name, address and telephone number in Section VII. If you do not need an Absentee Ballot and receive an application in the mail, simply discard.
Applications may be submitted immediately and dropped in the Election Drop Boxes located at 600 Main Street, Somers or they may be mailed to the Town Clerk’s office at the same address. In order for you to receive your ballot on time, applications should be submitted as soon as possible to avoid receiving a late ballot.
Ballots will be mailed starting October 7, 2022. Completed ballots must be received by 8 p.m. on Election Day. Questions regarding Absentee Ballots may be sent to David Marti at firstname.lastname@example.org.CLICK HERE FOR SAMPLE BALLOT
