VOTING AND ELECTIONS

 The 2020 general election, which includes candidates for President of the U.S., will take place on Tuesday November 3.

All of the usual polling places will be open from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m.

Information about voting by mail-in/absentee ballot is available on the Town Clerk's portion of this website and here under "Absentee Ballots." In addition to USPS, a clearly marked secure drop box for both applications and ballots is located by the main entrance doors to Town Hall.

If you are not registered to vote, now is the time to do so. 

Access to the Cheshire Town Hall remains restricted except by appointment. Residents are asked to contact individual departments to address their needs.  This includes the Elections Department, which has resumed regular office hours: Monday-Friday, 9am-3pm.

If you need our assistance, you can call us at (203) 271-6680 or contact our office by email. If you need to drop something off, we can meet you at the main entrance. Please call our office when you arrive [note: absentee ballot applications must be delivered to the Town Clerk's office, not ours].

If you simply want to confirm that you are registered to vote, you can check the Secretary of the State's website.

Links to register to vote, change party affiliation, and inquire about absentee ballots online are available on this Elections Department section website. 

Voter registration is available ALL YEAR - if you are not registered, please see the Voter Registration page of this website or call the Elections Office for details (203) 271-6680.

If you are registering for the first time or changing your status and do not want to be affiliated with a political party, please check this box: "NO. I do not wish to enroll in a party at this time." If you write "Independent" on your form, you are telling us that you wish to register with the Independent Party (Connecticut has existing Independent and Independant parties)
