  • § 2537. Early or absentee voting in the town clerk's office

    (a)(1) A voter may, if he or she chooses, apply in person to the town clerk for the early voter absentee ballots and envelopes rather than having them mailed as required by section 2539 of this subchapter.

    (2) In this case, the clerk shall furnish the early voter absentee ballots and envelopes when a valid application has been made.

    (3) The voter may mark his or her ballots, place them in the envelope, sign the certificate, and return the ballots in the envelope containing the certificate to the town clerk or an assistant town clerk without leaving the office of the town clerk, or the voter may take the ballots and return them to the town clerk in the same manner as if the ballots had been received by mail.

    (b) No person, except justices of the peace as provided in section 2538 of this subchapter, may take any ballot from the town clerk on behalf of any other person. (Added 1977, No. 269 (Adj.
