The Office of the Town Clerk is one of the oldest positions in government. The Barkhamsted Town Clerk's Office operates in accordance with the Connecticut General Statutes and the Code of the Town of Barkhamsted (Ordinances).

The Town Clerk's Office preserves and protects town records and provides a wide range of services to the public in a professional and courteous manner. These services include but are not limited to the recording of all land records, maps and surveys, vital records (births, marriages and deaths, burials), military discharges, election results, town ordinances, agendas minutes and membership of boards and commissions, trade name certificates, liquor licenses and notaries. In addition, the Town Clerk's Office prepares the ballot for all elections and issues absentee ballots. Marriage licenses, dog licenses, sport licenses and certified copies of vital records are also issued  by the Town Clerk's Office.


Any elector may vote by absentee ballot if one of the following is applicable:
• They will be absent from town during all hours of voting
• Personal illness or physical disability
• Active service in the US armed forces
• Religious tenets which forbid secular activity on election, primary or referendum day
• Service as an election official at a polling place other than the official's place of voting.

An Absentee Ballot Application form may be printed from the link to the left of this notice or obtained from the Town Clerk's office either in person or through the mail. Please note that this form is designed for legal paper - so please reduce when printing so that the full form appears on the page or be sure to ask to print on legal size paper. We are unable to accept partial forms. Completed applications must be returned to the Town Clerk's office of the town where the applicant is an elector. Ballots must be given or mailed directly to the applicant; they may not be given to another person for delivery to the applicant.
Completed ballots must be received by the Town Clerk's office by the close of polls in order to be counted. An elector who votes by absentee ballot may return the ballot in person by the day before the election or primary or mail the ballot so that it is received by the Town Clerk's office by the close of polls. If mailing, please mail early enough to allow sufficient time for the post office to transport and deliver the ballot on or before election or primary day.
UOCAVA (Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act) establishes procedures that allow members of the US Armed Forces and electors temporarily residing overseas to request voter registration applications and absentee ballot applications by mail or electronically. Access the Connecticut Secretary of State's site for applications and a link to the Federal Voting Assistance Program website to fill out a Federal Postcard Application which can serve as both an application for Voter Registration and an application for an Absentee Ballot for voters residing outside the United States of America.
