In person Early Voting will take place one week before all State Primaries and two weeks before every State Election. There will not be Early Voting in person for Local Elections. Voters may now request a ballot be mailed to them for EVERY type of Election, including your LOCAL ELECTION! Find out more at the MA Elections Division website.
Massachusetts allows voters to vote by absentee ballot if they:
will be absent from your city or town on election day, and/or
have a physical disability that prevents your voting at the polling place, and/or
cannot vote at the polls due to religious beliefs.
You may go to the Town Clerk's Office during regular business hours and vote absentee over the counter twenty days prior to the election, up to noon the day before election day.
To have an absentee ballot mailed to you, you may either download the Absentee Ballot Application, complete the form and mail it to the Town Clerk's Office or go to the Town Clerk's Office during regular business hours and complete an application.
To be counted, a completed, signed absentee ballot must be received at the Town Clerk's Office before the polls close on Election Day.
