Ask the Registrar


Absentee Ballots

By Registrar James Simon

Q: Absentee Ballots for the November 2nd election are available beginning on October 1st.   How do I get one?

A: IT’S AS EASY AS 1-2-3…

Step 1: First you must apply for an Absentee Ballot; all voters can cite Covid and the pandemic as a reason for requesting one.  The Town Clerk handles the distribution of Absentee Ballots; you can write to the office and request a ballot:

Susan M. Pawluk
Stratford Town Clerk
2725 Main Street
Room 106
Stratford, CT 06615

Telephone:  203-385-4020
Fax:  203-385-4005

You can save time by downloading and printing the ballot application, then returning it to the Town Clerk:

(NOTE: There is no place on the form to specify the date of the election. So in the middle of the application, where it asks for a date for referendum/ primary, write: Nov. 2, 2021 election)

Step 2. Once you get the official ballot, fill it out and follow directions. Each Ballot Must be Returned in its own envelope; Do Not Combine your Absentee Ballot with that of Another Family Member. 

Step 3: Be sure to submit your ballot before 8 p.m. on November 2nd. You can mail the completed ballot to the Town Clerk at the above address. Or you can bring it to the white Ballot Drop Box, alongside Town Hall, across from the Fire Station.
