Permanent Absentee Ballots

Due to change in election laws, any elector who is permanently physically disabled, is entitled to receive an absentee ballot for every election or primary without reapplying.

To be eligible an elector must complete and sign an absentee ballot application and submit it together with a doctor's note (on physician's letterhead) that states you have a permanent disability and are unable to appear in person at your polling place.

When the Town Clerk's office has received an absentee ballot application with a doctor's note an elector will then have permanent absentee ballot status. The Town Clerk's office will send absentee ballots to eligible electors for each election without having to reapply.

To receive a permanent absentee ballot:

  1. Obtain a note from your doctor (on the physician's letterhead) stating that you have a permanent disability.
  2. Fill out an application for absentee ballot. You may request an application from the town clerk or click here to download a copy.
