Absentee voters who have requested a ballot for the 3/30/20 Annual Town Election will still be eligible to vote In-Person on election day as long as their ballot has not been cast. If you have requested an absentee ballot to be mailed to an address which is no longer current, please notify the Town Clerk’s office by email at [email protected] or mail in a new absentee ballot application.
