Oxford Town Clerk Margaret West reminds residents that they can vote by absentee ballot in the Nov. 5 election.
If a registered voter is unable to vote in person, he or she may be able to apply to the Town Clerk for an Absentee Ballot for any of the following reasons:
- Absence from Town during all the hours of voting
- Physical disability
- Active service in the armed forces
- Duties as an election official at a polling place
- Religious Tenets
Absentee ballots for the Municipal Election on Nov. 5, 2013, will become available on Friday, Oct. 4, 2013. Applications are available at the Town Clerk’s Office or on the Town’s Website go to the Town Clerk’s page and follow the link “Absentee Ballot Information and Applications” at the bottom of the page. (Editor's Note: It will take you here.)
Please print the application, fill it out sign and return it in person or by mail to the OXFORD TOWN CLERK, 486 Oxford Road, Oxford, CT 06478. This application can also be dropped off by a family member.
The law requires that the Town Clerk personally hand your ballot to you or it must be mailed. This means that you can not have another elector regardless if it’s a family member pick up your ballot. Once you receive your ballot and it is executed it can be returned by mail or to this office by a family member.
If you will be using the United States Postal Service rather than coming in person, please apply as soon as possible. Ballots must be returned by Election Day. If you have any questions please call the Town Clerk’s office at 203-888-2543, Ext 3024, 3025 & 3026 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
