Voting Information for August 9, 2022 Democratic Primary Election

Voting by Absentee Ballot

If you need to vote by absentee ballot, please click here to download the absentee ballot application.

For this election, voters do not have the option for no-excuse absentee voting. However, eligible voters can vote by absentee ballot if they meet the criteria of the three newly expanded reasons for voting absentee, as provided in the legislation passed by the General Assembly this year: 1) sickness; 2) physical disability; 3) absence from town on Election Day. Public Act 22-2 eases the restrictions previously written into state law. It removes a requirement that commuters be out of town for all hours in which polls are open. It deletes language requiring a voter to be personally ill in order to qualify for a ballot based on sickness. Please note that unlike in previous elections, COVID-19 will not be listed as a criteria to vote by absentee ballot.

You can also contact the Town Clerk’s office at townclerk@stamfordct.gov or call 203-977-5280 to request an application. For detailed information about Absentee voting click here.
