August 2020 Primary and Absentee Ballots

Connecticut will hold its Presidential Primary Election on Tuesday, August 11, 2020.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Ned Lamont signed an executive order allowing all registered Democrats and Republicans in Connecticut to obtain an absentee ballot for the August 11, 2020 primary. Secretary of the State Denise Merrill has mailed an absentee ballot application to every registered Democrat and Republican in the state to complete and return. These applications, which include postage-paid return envelopes, were sent via U.S. Postal Service and have started to appear in Killingworth mailboxes. A voter who requests an absentee ballot will receive their ballot (which will also include a postage paid return envelope) in the mail beginning on July 21, 2020.

Killingworth will also be installing a secure ballot drop box, located at Town Hall, to allow voters to deliver their absentee ballots in person without close personal contact. For those who would still like to appear in person to cast their vote, our polling place at Killingworth Elementary School will remain open, however, the ability to vote absentee will ensure that the democratic process continues safely and securely.

As always, Killingworth voters can contact the Town Clerk’s Office at 860-663-1765 x502 with any questions. Although currently closed to the public, the Town Clerk’s Office is still working every day and is happy to assist you in any way we can.
