Voter registration is required. The residency requirement is 10 days. The registration form is available online at Please include a copy of your proof of residency and ID when registering by mail (usually copy of drivers license covers both proof of residency and Voter ID if it has current address on it.) The new law DOES NOT allow voter registration or absentee voting on the Monday before any election, so plan ahead. You may register on election days.


Once it has been determined you are a registered voter, you will be asked to sign the poll book. If you refuse to sign, you will not be allowed to vote.


You MUST be a registered voter to get an absentee ballot. Your request for an absentee ballot must be in writing. You may e-mail the town clerk to make that request or you can get an absentee application online at You must plan ahead as the new law states NO ABSENTEE VOTING WILL TAKE PLACE ON MONDAY BEFORE ANY ELECTION. A valid photo ID must be provided when voting by absentee ballot unless you are a type of voter that is either exempt by statute or may have an alternative process to verify our identity. For more information review the Absentee Voter - Voter ID Requirement flyer.
