From the Wellesley Town Clerk:
Voting? Register by August 27th & October 15th
Will you be voting in the upcoming Massachusetts State Primary and State Election? Are you registered to vote? Are you sure?
The Wellesley Town Clerk office hours are 8:00am – 5:00 pm Monday through Friday. On August 27 and October 15 there will be extended hours for voter registration from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm.
The Massachusetts City and Town Clerks Associations urge all residents to check their voter registration (and party affiliation) by August 27th for the September 16 State Primary and October 15th for the November 4 Presidential Election.
Even if you have been registered to vote for years, many Federal and State laws impact your registration status. If you have moved, changed your name, or your local street list form was not received at city or town hall, you may encounter an issue at the polls.
When you registered to vote, you should have received a confirmation notice from the Registrars. If not, your registration may not have reached their office. If your local census form was not received by the town clerk and you received a postage paid notice of inactivation, fill it out and send it in by the August 27th deadline for the State Primary or October 15th deadline for the Presidential Election.
If there is an issue with your voting status, in some cases, you will have to fill out an affidavit and show identification at the polls. In other cases, you may be offered a Provisional Ballot that will only be cast if your registration eligibility is verified.
City and Town Clerks want all eligible citizens to be able to cast their ballot. Act now. Don’t wait. Check your voter registration status! CALL 781-431-1019 ext 2250 or email [email protected] if you have any concerns.
