You must first fill out an application, which you may pick up at the town clerk or registrars’ office in the Town Hall, or it may be mailed to you at any address. After you return the application, it will be processed and the absentee ballot will be sent to you, but not until two to four weeks before the actual election. If the ballot is printed and ready, you may fill it out at the town clerk’s office. Absentee ballots, however, will not be mailed to a person for a referendum.
