Elections and Voting

I would like to take this opportunity to make you aware of a few things that will help you when you go to the polls, and protect your right to vote.

  1. Be sure to answer your annual census/voter confirmation form. That form is sent out annually by the Town Clerk to confirm that you are still at your same residence. This keeps your voter status up to date.
  2. If you change your residential address or mailing address within town, please make sure that you notify the Town Clerk’s office so that your voting record will be up-to-date.
  3. If you move out of town to a new community, you need to register to vote in that community. When you register to vote, your new Town Clerk will notify your prior Town Clerk that you have registered elsewhere.
  4. You can only be a registered voter in one place. That should be the town or city that you consider to be your permanent residence; and where you spend the majority of your time, and from where you file your income taxes.
  5. If you register to vote or change your address with the Registry of Motor Vehicles (or a social service agency), please keep the receipt with you and take it with you to the polls the first time you vote after such a change.
  6. If you have any questions at any time about the voting process, your registration, or the times of elections in your community, please feel free to contact the Town Clerk for assistance.
  7. Be an informed voter, and exercise your right to vote.
