The Town Clerk’s Office will be available for walk-ins 8:00AM to 8:00PM on APRIL 7TH.

You may submit an application to register or pre-register to vote in Massachusetts if:

You are a citizen of the United States; and

You are 16 years old; and

You are not currently incarcerated by reason of a felony conviction.

Pre-registering to Vote: Though you must be 18 years old to vote, you may pre-register to vote once you are 16 years old. If you are 16 or 17 years old, you may submit a voter registration form to your local election official, who will then place your name on the list of pre-registrants. You will receive a pre-registration notice by mail, confirming receipt of your application. Pre-registration may be done online, by mail, or in person at any voter registration location (see above). Once you become old enough to vote, your local election will mail you an acknowledgement notice, which is confirmation that your name has been moved from the list of pre-registrants to the list of registered voters. Your acknowledgement notice will include your party affiliation and the location of your polling place.

If you meet the above requirements, you may apply online, by mail, or in-person. In order to register to vote online, you must have a signature on file with the Registry of Motor Vehicles. If you currently have a Massachusetts driver's license or state ID card, you qualify to register online, update your address, or change your party affiliation.   https://www.sec.state.ma.us/ovr/ Voter registration forms submitted online must be submitted by midnight, Wednesday, April 7th.
