Permanent Absentee Ballot for Disabled
Under Public Act No. 11-173, a disabled elector may qualify to obtain Permanent Absentee Ballot status by submitting a completed Absentee Ballot application along with a letter from a doctor, on the doctor’s letterhead, stating that the elector has a permanent disability that prevents them from appearing in person at the polls. Upon receipt of these items, Absentee Ballots will be automatically mailed to the elector for all elections the elector is eligible to vote in (note: Permanent Absentee Ballots do no pertain to referendums with less than 3 weeks notice. CGS. § S9-369c).
Note: A canvass will be sent by the Registrar of Voters, annually in January, to determine if the elector continues to reside at the address indicated on their application. The elector has 30 days to respond to the canvass. Failure to respond will result in removal from Permanent Absentee Ballot status.
