If you would like an absentee ballot, you must request, in writing, by either the voter or the voter’s family member. For convenience, absentee ballot applications may be downloaded at Mass.gov. Please note that any written communication evidencing a desire for an absentee ballot is acceptable. If you would like to request an absentee ballot, you may submit an application or a signed letter to Town Hall. If you are requesting an absentee ballot for a family member, be sure to submit the request to the voter’s local election official.
When completing the application, you may indicate whether you are requesting a ballot for a specific election, or if you will be needing a ballot for all elections this year. Please note absentee ballot applications expire at the end of each calendar year.
Absentee ballot applications must be received by Town Hall by 12 p.m. on the day before the election.
Applications may be submitted in person, by mail, fax, or by e-mail; however, the local election official must be able to view the signature of the person requesting the ballot. If the application is being submitted by e-mail, a scanned copy of the request must be submitted.
