If you're a Westport resident who plans to vote in the upcoming election on Tuesday but can't make it to the polls, there's still time to pick up an absentee ballot, Town Clerk Patricia Strauss says.
From 9 a.m. to noon today, registered voters can stop by Room 105 at Town Hall and apply for absentee ballots. Absentee ballots will be available through 4:30 p.m. Monday.
If you pick up an absentee ballot but don't have time to fill it out immediately, return it to the town clerk's office by Tuesday. But don't wait until the last minute to return it: all absentee ballots must be received by the town clerk's office no later than 8 p.m. when the polls officially close. If you go to hand in your ballot after 8 p.m., it will not be accepted and your vote will not count.
Applications for absentee ballots can be downloaded from the town's website .
