The absentee ballot process is now underway for the Nov. 3, 2020 election, with an initial mailing of roughly 2.2 million absentee ballot applications to registered voters in Connecticut being sent out by a mail house hired by the Secretary of State’s Office, and while there are instructions included with the ballots, many voters still have questions.

The mail house is being used only for the applications, not to send the actual ballots. A mail house was used during the primary and then town clerks took over the task of sending absentee ballots to those who requested them.

West Hartford Town Clerk Essie Labrot has put together a series of FAQs, which appear below and on the Town Clerk’s web page and under the Absentee Ballot tab on the Town of West Hartford website, and said her office has been fielding as many as 200-300 questions per day.
