State Primary set for Sept. 9; Wellesley voting/polling info

September 9 is the Primary to select candidates who will appear on the ballot for the November 4 State General Election.
Voter Registration
August 20 was the last day to register as a new voter in Wellesley, or change party affiliation, to participate in the primary.
Absentee Ballots
Absentee ballots for the primary are available from the Town Clerk. Voter who are unable to go to the polls on election/primary day are encouraged to vote by absentee ballot.

If a voter wishes to vote absentee please file a written request with the clerk stating your name, address and the address to mail the ballot.  For the primary specify the party ballot you choose. Requests may be mailed or emailed, but must show an original signature.  Requests may be filed by the voter or a family member.  Absentee voters may also vote in person at the office of the Town Clerk, Monday- Friday 8 am – 5 pm until Monday September 8 at NOON.
