Physical disability preventing you from going to the polling place.
Absentee ballot request forms are available at the Town Hall or online at www.tolland-ma.gov, the deadline for submitting this completed request form is noon on Monday February 29th. IMPORTANT: If you are registered as “U” (unenrolled) you much check off on the request form which party ballot you wish to receive.
If you know that you are not able to come out to vote for any of the elections during 2016 you may check off the box that indicates “for all elections” and a absentee ballot will be sent out automatically for every election.
The absentee ballot can’t be dropped in the front door mail drop; mail it or hand deliver it to the Town Clerk up until close of polls (8 pm). You also may arrange with the Town Clerk to come in and vote your absentee ballot at the Town Hall prior to the election, refer to contact information below.
Important to remember; once I receive your request for absentee ballot I will send the ballot via US Mail. Be sure to follow the instructions when completing the absentee ballot which includes filling out the front of the brown envelope, signing it and sealing your ballot into it.
Absentee ballots must be delivered to the Town Clerk by close of polls.

“People often say that in a democracy, decisions are made by a majority of the people. Of course, that is not true. Decisions are made by a majority of those who make themselves heard and who vote – a very different thing.” Walter H. Judd
