The Town of Ellington

Presidential Primary - Absentee Ballots and In-Person Voting

The Presidential Primary is to be held on Tuesday, August 11, 2020. Absentee Ballot Applications are being mailed to every registered Democrat and Republican elector in Town, via a printing mail house hired by the Secretary of the State’s Office.

However, you may still vote in person at your polling location on August 11, between 6:00 am and 8:00 pm.

If you choose to vote by Absentee Ballot, fill out the application and return it to the Ellington Town Clerk via mail or via the Ballot Box, which will be located in the Town Hall parking lot between Main Street and Maple Street. The Town Clerk’s Office will process the application, and once the ballots are available, the ballot will be mailed to you via the same printing mail house. You will then return your voted ballot via mail or via Ballot Box. The Town Clerk will lock your ballot safely in the vault, until that time that the Registrars of Voters and the Absentee Ballot Moderator processes your ballot, using State Statute protocols.

The Ballot Box is scheduled to be installed shortly. In the event that it is not installed by the time you wish to drop off your application, you may safely use the Town Hall Drop Box in the front of the Town Hall.
