Important Dates to Know
October 27: deadline to register to vote, or you can register to vote on Election Day
November 2 (the day before Election Day): deadline to request an absentee ballot. But if you are applying to vote absentee, it is important to do so as early as possible to avoid the risk of your application potentially not being received in time.
November 3, 8 p.m. (Election Day): deadline by which your town clerk must have received your absentee ballot. If you are returning your ballot to your town clerk in person (not via mail or dropbox), you must deliver it to your town clerk by November 2, the day before Election Day. Remember: if you are voting absentee, it is important to do so as early as possible to avoid the risk of your ballot not being received in time.
November 3: Election Day. If the polls close while you are in line to vote on Election Day, stay in line. If you are registering to vote on Election Day and are in the registration line by 8 p.m., you have the right to cast your ballot that day.
