State Elections July 14; Absentee Voting Option Available

The State Primary and Special Referendum Election is set for Tuesday, July 14. At this time, both in-person and absentee voting are available for the election. 

Durham residents can vote in person on July 14 from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Durham AMVETS Post 13, 1049 Royalsborough Rd. 

For those who would rather vote by absentee ballot and minimize interaction with others during the COVID-10 pandemic, this is an option. Casting an absentee ballot is convenient and secure. 

Absentee ballots may be requested in writing, by phone, online, or in person up to and including the day of the election, without specifying a reason. However, if you are asking to receive your ballot by mail, please request it early enough to allow for postal mail delivery time – both to receive it and return it (2-5 days each way).

  • You can request an absentee ballot by calling the Durham Town Clerk’s office at 353-2561 x11
  • You can request an absentee ballot online or by mail from the Secretary of State's website:
  • Absentee ballot requests are being accepted right now. Printed ballots will be available by mid-June, and we will issue your ballot as soon as possible after that date. 
  • Ballots must be returned to the municipal clerk no later than 8:00 p.m. on Election Day, July 14.
