Just a reminder that the November 4 State election is coming up fast, and the last day to register to vote in this election (and for all future elections, happily ever after) is Wednesday, October 15, 2014. Here’s a form to help you do just that.
If you’re already a registered voter and need an absentee ballot you can download one here, or stop by town hall and pick one up for yourself or someone else. In addition, you can vote ahead of time in person by going to town hall during business hours. Voters may apply for an absentee ballot until noon, November 3, 2014.
If you’re planning to vote the old-fashioned way, polls will be open on Tuesday, November 4, 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. A guide to candidates and ballot questions was mailed to all voters on September 20. Did yours end up in recycling the next day? No problem, a guide to candidates and ballot questions is available here.
On the big day, Massachusetts citizens will exercise their civic duty by voting for Senator in Congress, Governor and Lt. Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, Treasurer (Wellesley’s own Mike Heffernan is in the running for that position), and more. But that’s not all. Embrace your chance to stand up and be counted on where you stand on questions regarding the gas tax, beverage deposits, gaming, and employee sick time.
If you only have time to exercise once on November 4, exercise your right to vote.
