Residents must register by Friday, August 17, to vote in the State Primary Election on September 6. To accommodate voters, the Town Clerk’s Office at Town Hall will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday.
As required by state law, voters must register 20 days before the election.
The clerk’s hours are even more extended this year because Town Hall typically closes at 1:30 p.m. on Fridays during the summer.
Registration forms need to be filled out to declare a political party or due to change of name or address.
Mail-in voter registration forms must be post marked by August 17 as well. The form can be found here. Residents registering via mail need to send a completed and signed form with a copy of their license to the Town Clerk’s Office.
