MONROE, CT — Secretary of the State Denise W. Merrill will mail absentee ballot applications to every eligible voter in Connecticut for the Presidential Election on Nov. 3, 2020.

Those choosing to vote by absentee should return their completed application to the Monroe Town Clerk’s Office in order for their information to be put into the state system, qualifying them to receive an absentee ballot.

Once your application is complete, Town Clerk Vida Stone asks that you drop it off in the secure State Official Ballot Drop Box outside the Monroe Police Department. This drop box is available 24/7 and is checked throughout the day.

College students voting by absentee, should clearly indicate the address they wish the ballot to be sent to on their application.

Important: Those who have already mailed in an absentee ballot application for the November election, should complete the application they receive from the Secretary of the State and drop it off.

“We will cross-check it with the one we have already received,” Stone said.

Absentee ballots will be available on Oct. 2.

“If you have requested an absentee ballot, it will be mailed to you directly from our office,” Stone said. “Again, once completed, please utilize the secure State Official Ballot Drop Box located outside the front doors of the Monroe Police Department.  This will allow us to process the information daily. It is your choice whether you use this system or decide to mail the absentee ballot through the post office.”

Currently, all four polling places are expected to be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day, Nov. 3, for those wishing to vote in person.
