The state began mailing out Absentee Ballot applications for the Aug. 11 primary last week.
By Ronni Newton
Town Clerk Essie Labrot said that West Hartford residents should have received, or will soon receive, Absentee Ballot applications for the Aug. 11 primary that were mailed out by the Secretary of State’s Office beginning last week.
Applications will be sent to registered Democrats and Republicans only, because they are the only voters who are eligible to vote in the Aug. 11 primary.
Those who would like to receive a ballot must complete the application properly and return it in the self-addressed stamped envelope provided with the application. The applications can be sent in by mail, or can be dropped in one of the two secure Absentee Ballot drop boxes in front of West Hartford Town Hall.
Those who do not receive an application by July 15 and who wish to vote by Absentee Ballot can request an application through the West Hartford voter hotline, 860-561-7458.
Ballots will begin to be mailed out to those who have completed applications on July 21, and can be returned via mail or dropped off in one of the ballot boxes.
Any with questions regarding the application or voter registration should visit the town’s website, westhartfordct.gov. Information about Absentee Ballots can be found under the “Town Clerk” tab and registration information can be found under the “Registrar of Voters” tab.
The voter hotline, 860-561-7458, is operational Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
