Citizens for Milford has cancelled the Candidates Forum in an effort to keep everyone—candidates, voters, and volunteers—safe during this challenging time of public health concerns. The forum had been scheduled for Thursday, March 19.
We understand that the public health situation is changing rapidly. If the Town decides to pursue actions to postpone the April 7th election, we will reevaluate and plan to hold the forum at a later date.
In the meantime, voters can read candidate profiles and other pertinent information on the 2020 MILFORD CANDIDATES page on this website. Contact information is included so you can email questions directly to the candidates.
In addition, we recommend that you take advantage of other ways to get informed, such as reading profiles in the Town Crier, Milford Daily News, Patch online news, as well as watching the interviews and debates broadcast on Milford TV and aired on MyFM 101.3.
Candidate testimonials can be viewed on the Milford Election 2020 page of Milford TV’s video on-demand site: Milford.vod.castus.tv/vod. In addition, voters can watch candidate interviews conducted by Al Correia on “That Milford Show” on youtube.com.
Please know how disappointed we are to be cancelling this important community event! We appreciate every candidate’s commitment to the community as a candidate for office and encourage every Milford voter to go to the polls on April 7th to VOTE!

News About the Town Election from the Town Clerk
The Town of Milford is closely monitoring the current public health situation including the Corona virus. There is no current expectation that the April 7th Annual Town Election will be cancelled or rescheduled.
A postponement or cancellation of the election would require either a change in the law or a Court order, or both. The Town Clerk and Board of Registrars will take all reasonable and appropriate measures to maintain our polling locations clean and disinfected throughout Election Day.
Voters who may be quarantined due to illness, or self-quarantined, will qualify to vote by Absentee Ballot, and are encouraged to apply for an Absentee Ballot as soon as possible to ensure sufficient time for mailing. Voters who already applied for and plan to vote by absentee ballot, but now have a mailing address which is different from their address as currently registered, are requested to contact our office as soon as possible. This request may apply to college students or those traveling abroad.
Please check the Town Website for Board of Health and Elections updates, as the situation continues to develop.
REMINDER! The last day to register to vote in the Town Election is Wednesday, March 18 by 8:00 p.m. in the Town Clerk’s office.
