This afternoon - Monday, August 10, 2020 - the Governor executed Executive Order No. 7MMM which affects important aspects of our absentee ballot program:

 

  • First, any absentee ballot that is POSTMARKED by August 11, 2020, and received in the mail by August 13, 2020, shall be counted and their totals shall be included in the vote totals for the municipality.  Any ballot received after August 13, 2020, should be rejected.

  • Those ballots that are received in the mail by August 13, 2020, should be compared to the official enrollment list to ensure that no person has already cast a ballot. Once that is complete, the ballots shall be reviewed and counted just like ballots that were received on a primary day.


IMPORTANT!  TO ENSURE THAT YOUR ABSENTEE BALLOT WILL BE RECEIVED ON TIME, PLEASE PLACE YOUR BALLOT INTO BOTH THE INNER AND OUT ENVELOPES AND PLACE YOUR BALLOT INTO THE SECURE DROP BOX LOCATED IN YOUR MUNICIPALITY.  

ONCE DEPOSITED IN THE SECURE DROPBOX YOUR BALLOT IS CONSIDERED RECEIVED BY YOUR MUNICIPALITY.


YOUR BALLOT MUST BE DEPOSITED IN THE SECURE DROPBOX NO LATER THAN 8 P.M. ON AUGUST 11, 2020.


NORWICH ABSENTEE BALLOT BOX LOCATIONS:
