ABSENTEE BALLOT INFORMATION
You may vote by absentee ballot if you are a registered voter who will be unable to vote at the polls on election day due to:
- absence from town during normal polling hours; or
- physical disability preventing you from going to the polling place; or
- Religious belief.
Voters who wish to vote ahead of time that are unable to come to the Clerk’s office may download and mail in a completed Absentee Ballot Application. A family member of the voter may apply for an absentee ballot on behalf of such voter by downloading and completing an absentee ballot application by a Family Member. The law requires that a ballot be mailed to the voter. The deadline for voting an absentee ballot is noon of the day before the election. In order to allow sufficient time for mailing out and mailing back ballots, applications should be filed with the Town Clerk as early as possible. ~An absentee voter or a family member of the voter
may return the absentee ballot in person to the Office of the Town Clerk or mail it back but it must arrive before the close of polls on election day. You cannot deliver an Absentee Ballot directly to the polling place on Election Day.
Please contact the Town Clerk’s Office if you have any questions regarding the above or if you would like a voter registration card or absentee ballot application mailed to you. You may also log onto the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s website to obtain a voter card (http://www.sec.state.ma.us/ele/elestu/stuidx.htm) or click here to request an application for an absentee ballot.
