TO OBTAIN AN ABSENTEE BALLOT YOU MUST MAKE A REQUEST IN WRITING.
Contact your municipal clerk and request that an application for an absentee ballot be sent to you for the primary or election or both. You may also request an absentee ballot by letter. Your written request must list your voting address within the municipality where you wish to vote, the address where the absentee ballot should be sent, if different, and your signature.
Special absentee voting application provisions apply to electors who are indefinitely confined to home or a care facility, in the military, hospitalized, or serving as a sequestered juror. If this applies to you, contact the municipal clerk.
You can also personally go to the clerk’s office or other specified location, complete a written application, and vote an absentee ballot during the hours specified for casting an absentee ballot.
The deadline for making application to vote absentee by mail is 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 1, 2012.
Military Electors should contact the municipal clerk regarding the deadlines for requesting or submitting an absentee ballot.

The deadline for voting an absentee ballot in the clerk’s office is 5:00 p.m. on Friday, November 2, 2012.
