Automatic absentee ballots for disabled voters

Wilton’s registrars of voters remind voters with a permanent physical disability about a program that can make the process of voting easier. In 2013, the Connecticut legislature enacted a law allowing voters with permanent physical disabilities to receive absentee ballots after filing a physician’s statement and an absentee ballot application with their town clerk.

Those who participate in this program automatically receive absentee ballots in the mail for every election or primary and certain referenda held within their municipality during the year without having to submit new applications each time.

Every January, Wilton’s registrars of voters contact those in the program to verify their residence. For more information on permanent absentee ballot status, voters may call the Wilton Town Clerk’s office at 203-563-0106.
