General Registration Deadline:
- There is no registration cutoff. You may register to vote up to and including the day of the election. However, if you register online, the day before or on Election Day, your application may not be processed and your name may not appear on the checklist. In this case, you'll be asked to fill out another voter application at the polls.
- To ensure your name appears on the checklist, register by the Friday before the election.
Deadline to Request Mail-In Ballot:
- No deadline, but request your absentee ballot from your town/city clerk as early as possible.
- An Absentee Ballot Application can be downloaded here.
- All early voter absentee ballot requests must be submitted by 5 p.m. or by the close of the town clerk's office on the day before the election.
- All ballots must be returned to the town clerk's office before the close of the office on the day before the election, or to the polling place before 7 p.m. on the day of the election.
If you'd like to vote early or by mail, you can do so as soon as ballots are available (no later than 45 days before the primary or general election). For the November 3, 2020 general election, absentee ballots will be available no later than September 21, 2020.
