Town Clerk Leanne Adams said voters currently stuck at home in quarantine can email their request for an absentee ballot if they’d rather not risk coming to Town Hall to ask for one.
Voters can email Adams at firstname.lastname@example.org and her office will send out the absentee ballot via mail.
The number of Abington residents with active COVID-19 cases has jumped back up to 26, the Board of Health announced this morning, with dozens more in quarantine due to being in close contact with the virus-carrying person.
The quarantine period lasts a minimum of 14 days. Election Day is in 7 days.
So far, 3,500 registered Abington voters have requested and received mail-in ballots.
Absentee or mail-in ballots can also be dropped off at the Town Clerk’s Office or left in the metal drop box outside Town Hall. The drop box is emptied multiple times per day and monitored via security camera.
