We are always looking for help on Election Day! To be eligible, you must be at least 18 years old and a registered voter. Election clerks enrolled in the major parties (Democratic and Republican) are needed; several shifts are scheduled throughout the day. Duties of election clerks include checking in voters, handing out ballots, tallying votes (some by machine and some by hand, depending on the type of election), and properly securing election materials at the end of the evening under the direction of the town clerks and Registrar of Voters. Election wardens oversee the polls. Interested in becoming an election clerk or warden? Contact the town office

NEW! Ongoing absentee ballot requests are now being accepted for those older than 65 or self-report as having a disability. Click here for the application. Once you complete an ongoing absentee ballot request, you will be sent an absentee ballot for each election without having to complete a request each time. However, if you move, your absentee ballot is returned as undeliverable, you request to be removed from ongoing absentee status, or you are disqualified, your ongoing absentee request will terminate.
