We are glad to announce that Absentee Ballots are now available. Absentee voting is available for registered voters who qualify, only those who will be absent from the town on Election Day, or have a disability that prevents them from going to the polls, or have a religious belief preventing the same, are legally allowed to vote by absentee ballot. Early Voting will be available the week prior to the Election; February 24th through February 28th - the Presidential Primary election is March 3rd. Early voting is for every registered voter. Registered voters do not need an excuse or reason to vote early.
Regardless of whether a voter wants to take advantage of early voting, vote absentee or vote on Election Day, the first step is making sure you are registered. To check to see if you are registered to vote, and to find information on how to register to vote, you may visit the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s website: www.sec.state.ma.us/ele, or check in with the Town Clerk’s Office (781-741-1410).
