A sign on the Route 111 green reminds voters of Monroe's May 3 town budget referendum.

MONROE, CT — Residents who cannot make it to the polls for the referendum on the $96.7 million town budget Tuesday, May 3, can still vote by absentee. Absentee ballots are now available in the Town Clerk’s Office in Room 201 of Monroe Town Hall, Town Clerk Vida Stone announced Monday.

The Town Clerk’s Office will offer extended hours for absentee voting Thursday, April 28, until 7:30 p.m. and on Saturday, April 30, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Those who believe they will be unable to vote in person on May 3 may apply for an absentee ballot. Acceptable reasons for voting in this manner are limited to the following:

  1. Absence from town during all the hours of voting (6 a.m.- 8 p.m.)
  2. Service in the Armed Forces (including the Service Academies)
  3. Illness
  4. Physical Disability
  5. Religious tenets which forbid such activity on Election Day
  6. Working at the polls on May 3, 2022

Stone asks voters to use the official drop box in front of the Monroe Police Department lobby, to the right of the front doors, not inside. It is in a secure location and available 24/7. Dropping your absentee ballot in this box ensures that it will be received prior to the end of Election Day. You have until 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 3, to drop off your
absentee ballot.

All four polling places will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
