Absentee Ballot Update - 8/19/2020

The Norwalk Town Clerk’s Office received notice from the Secretary of the State that their office will be mailing each eligible voter in Connecticut an absentee ballot application in the upcoming weeks. If a person is choosing to vote absentee, their completed application should be returned to the Town Clerk’s Office in order for their information to be entered into the State system qualifying them to receive an absentee ballot. Please make sure the address is correct on the application, as this will be the address used to send the ballot.

Once an application is completed, please drop it off in a secure official drop box located outside of Norwalk City Hall, 125 East Ave. or Norwalk Police Department, 1 Monroe Street. The drop boxes are available 24/7 and will be checked daily starting September 1, 2020. 

IMPORTANT: If someone has already mailed in an absentee ballot application for the November election, please complete the application received from the Secretary of the State and drop it off.   

Absentee ballots will become available on October 2, 2020. A person’s absentee ballot will be mailed to them directly from the Town Clerk’s Office. Again, once completed, please utilize the secure drop box located outside the front doors of City Hall or the Norwalk Police Department. This will allow staff to process information faster than if someone utilized the services of a post office. It is a person’s choice whether they use this system or decide to mail the absentee ballot through the post office.

As of today, all 12 polling places in Norwalk will be open from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Election Day, November 3, 2020, for in-person voting.

If someone notices any errors with their voting information, please contact the Registrar of Voters at (203) 854-7996 to have a correction made.

 Please contact the Town Clerk’s Office at (203) 854-7747 or email Town Clerk Rick McQuaid at RMcQuaid@norwalkct.org with questions or concerns.
