A MESSAGE FROM THE TOWN CLERK’S OFFICE REGARDING PRIMARY ABSENTEE BALLOTS

If you have sent in your request for an absentee ballot please be aware of the following:

1. The Secretary of States office contracted a mailing house to mail the absentee ballots for the entire state. They are just starting to mail them now. I am very sorry for the delay, but is totally out of our control.

2. I have been informed that the directions included with the absentee ballots are confusing and may not make sense. PLEASE call me if you have any questions at all and I will walk you through the process. I do not want any ones ballot rejected because they didn’t understand the directions.

3. I have been receiving requests for ballots that are taking up to 17 days to get to me because of the mail overload in Hartford. I am very concerned that your ballot may not come back in time. If at all possible please put your ballot in the drop box pictured below or hand it to me at the front door 9-4 Monday -Thursday.

Please contact Pam Theroux in the Town Clerk’s office immediately with any questions or concerns at 860-376-4089 or townclerk@voluntown.gov.

And lastly if you receive a ballot that you did not request PLEASE call the Town Clerk immediately.
Thank you all so much for your understanding and patience.

Pam Theroux
Town Clerk
