Town Clerk Betsy Browne reminds Fairfield’s voters that absentee ballots for the November 8, 2016 election are now available in the Town Clerk’s Office. A registered voter may be qualified to use an absentee ballot for any of the following reasons:
- the voter will be out of town during all the hours of voting
- their illness or disability prevents them from voting in person
- religious tenets prohibit secular activity on the day of election
Absentee voting is a two-step process. An application for a ballot must be signed and filed with the Town Clerk before a ballot can be issued.
Applications are available at the Town Clerk’s Office Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM, or call 203-256-3090. Applications can also be downloaded and sent to the Town Clerk at 611 Old Post Road, Fairfield 06824.
The Town Clerk’s Office will be open on Saturday, November 5, 2016 from 9 AM to 12 noon for absentee balloting.
