Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Ned Lamont signed an executive order allowing all registered voters in Connecticut to vote absentee in the Tuesday, Aug. 11 primary.
Secretary of the State Denise Merrill mailed every registered Democrat and Republican in the state an application that they will need to fill out and return in order to obtain an absentee ballot.
Beginning Tuesday, July 21, all voters who requested an absentee ballot will receive the ballot in the mail, which will also include a postage paid return envelope.
The towns of Durham and Middlefield have installed secure ballot drop boxes, provided by the Secretary of the State, at each town hall.
For those who would still like to appear in person to cast their vote in the Aug. 11 primary, polling locations will remain open.
