The Town of Wellesley depends on the active participation of its citizens in governance of the town. Wellesley has 11 Boards and Committees elected at the Annual Town election each year in March. This year’s election date is March 5, 2019. The seats on these boards are staggered so that one or two seats are elected each year for 3 year terms. (Planning and Housing are 5 year terms).
Wellesley also has a representative Town Meeting for 240 members elected by voting precinct. Town Meeting Members have staggered three year terms so 10 are elected each year from each precinct.

How to find out which precinct you’re in
Mass.gov has a nifty page where you can plug in your address and it will tell you not only where to vote, but who our Town Clerk is (that would be KC Kato), the names of our elected officials and district representatives and links to their pages that include their phone numbers, emails, and other information
