Town Clerk

August 15, 2022:  The Secretary of the Commonwealth has set up a website for all things voter.  Please use this link to Track your Ballot, your voter registration, Voting by Mail, Voting Early in Person, Drop box locations and more!  https://www.sec.state.ma.us/ele/elesplash.htm
August 11, 2022:  We have mailed 2,000 Early and Absentee ballots to date.  Please note that if you are unenrolled (Independent) and did not pick a ballot, we are trying to contact you.  Unenrolled voters must choose a ballot.  We cannot mail you both ballots.  If you simply signed the card and did not mark which elections you wanted to vote in, we are trying to contact you.  If you are registered in a party and wanted a ballot from the other party, we are trying to contact you also.  We cannot mail you a Republican ballot if you are a registered Democrat and vice versa.  You can choose to change your party but you must do that at our office or by mail.  If you think you may fit into any of these categories, please contact our office.

July 29, 2022:  The response to the Vote by Mail cards sent by the Secretary of State has been good.  This week we have received over 1,500 cards.  Please use the Track my Ballot link in the July 20th message below to see if your request has been processed.  We have received over 150 cards with incomplete information and no phone number information.  We will be sending letters to these voters as time permits.  Primarily, these are voters who are unenrolled in a party but have not indicated which ballot they want for the Primary.  We cannot enter a request for a Primary ballot without a ballot selection.  Signed cards that have requested November ballots were updated for the November election. 

July 20, 2022:  The SOC's Elections Division has mailed an Early Voting by Mail Application to every voter in Massachusetts.  Please note that you can ask for a Primary Ballot or a November Elections Ballot or both on the one form.  If you want to vote in the Primary but are not a registered Republican or Democrat, you must indicate which ballot you want to vote for this Primary.  There are only the two ballots available.  Making a choice of party ballot will not effect your status as registered in a party designation (i.e. Pirate Party) or as Unenrolled in a party (i.e. Independent).  Your choice simply provides you with the ballot you choose to vote for this Primary only.  You can track your ballot at the following link:   https://www.trackmyballotma.com/  In 2020, we received quite a number of calls and emails from people who could not track their ballot.  Please remember that the street name and the street suffix are treated as two separate fields.  Using the Address of Town Hall as an example,  the Street Name is Moraine, the Street Suffix is ST (for Street).  If you have any questions, please call this office at 781-834-5540.  As the election season advances, the opportunity to answer emails in a timely manner becomes more and more problematic.  Copies of the ballots are available in the column to the left of this notice.

June 23, 2020:  The Votes Act was signed by Governor Baker on June 22, 2022.  There are changes to many election rules in Massachusetts including Early Voting and Vote by Mail.  I urge you to take a look at the changes as outlined in an advisory from the Elections Division uploaded to the left side green column of this page.  If you have questions, please reach out to us by phone or email.
Please keep checking back to this page as we tighten up our schedule and firm up dates and times for Early Voting and Vote by Mail.
Please note that we will be running election worker trainings in August and in October to prepare for the State Primary in September and the General Election in November.  If you are interested in joining the team, please contact our office either by email to either Terry or me or call us at 781-834-5540.

Thank you for your interest in preserving our Democracy by reading up on the Elections.
