If you are unable to vote at your polling place on the day of an election, due to disability, hospitalization, or absence from Dedham, you may vote absentee. Absentee ballots are available at the Town Clerk's office about a month prior to an election. You must first submit an absentee ballot application to the Town Clerk's office in-person or by mail.

Similarly to voting absentee, voting early allows you to cast your ballot before the scheduled election day. Early voting is conducted at Town Hall in the lower conference room, usually a week prior to the election, in a private voting booth that is the same as the ones used on Election Day. You do not have to submit an early voting application to the Town Clerk's office if you vote in-person .. you would need to fill out an application if you would like the ballot by mail. Please check with the Secretary of State office for an application.. Unlike absentee voting, no excuse is necessary for voting early.
