Registering to Vote

To check if you are registered go here https://www.sec.state.ma.us/voterregistrationsearch/myvoterregstatus.aspx

In order to vote in any election, a citizen must have registered to vote at least twenty days before the election. Citizens may register to vote in several ways:

1. On Line at https://www.sec.state.ma.us/ovr/

2. In person at the Town Clerk’s Office (or any Clerk’s Office in the Commonwealth)

3. At the Registry of Motor Vehicles or several other state agencies

4. By mail, using an official state form.

To obtain a form by mail, call the Town Clerk’s Office at 508-747-1620 X169. The voter registration form must be postmarked on or before the deadline date to be eligible for the next election.

Please note that if you will be 18 on or before Election Day but after the registration deadline, you can register before the deadline.

Once registered, a voter can maintain active voting status simply by completing the annual town census. If a voter moves, it is necessary to re register.
