Wonder if you can vote absentee? Yes, you can – if you can answer yes to one of these questions:

  • Will you be out of town during all the hours of voting on Election Day?

  • Are you an active member of the armed forces of the United States?

  • Will you be performing duties as an election official at a polling place other than your own during all the hours of voting on Election Day?

  • Do your religious beliefs prevent you from performing secular activities like voting on Election day?

  • Does illness prevent you from voting in person on Election Day?

How to Vote Absentee

Step 2: Return the filled-out application to the Trumbull Town Clerk’s office as soon as possible. Upon returning the application, the Town Clerk’s Office may ONLY give you YOUR OWN ballot.
