contribute's picture

Early voting for the State Election to be held on November 6th, 2018 will begin on October 22nd, 2018 and continue through November 2nd, 2018. Early voting is for every registered voter that wishes to participate. Registered voters do not need an excuse or reason to vote early. Regardless of whether a voter wants to take advantage of early voting, vote absentee, or vote on Election Day, the first step is making sure you are registered.

Check to see if you are registered to vote, and to find information on how to register to vote, you may visit the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s website: www.sec.state.ma.us/ele. If you need to register to vote, you may do it online by visiting: www.RegisterToVoteMA.com, mail in an application to the Town Clerk, or come down to the Town Clerk’s office to register in person. All you need is a license or I.D. issued by the Registry of Motor Vehicles to apply online. To be eligible to vote in the November 6th State Election, you must register to vote or make any necessary changes to your voter registration no later than 8:00 PM on Wednesday, October 17th, 2018.

Early voting can be done in person or by mail. In Hopkinton, early voting can be done in person at Hopkinton Town Hall, 18 Main Street from Monday, October 22nd, 2018 until Friday, November 2nd, 2018. It will be held during our usual business hours which are Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM, Tuesdays from 8:00 AM – 7:00 PM, and Fridays from 8:00 AM – 2:00 PM. For public convenience, the Hopkinton Town Clerk has decided to offer weekend hours on Saturday, October 27th from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM.

Also, registered voters have the option to request an early voting ballot through the mail. Simply fill out an application and mail it to the Town Clerk’s Office, 18 Main Street, Hopkinton, MA 01748. You can find the application on the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s website: http://www.sec.state.ma.us/ele.
Please note, however, once a voter has cast an early voting ballot, the voter may not vote at the polls on Election Day.
We encourage Hopkinton citizens to exercise that right and take advantage of the opportunity to vote according to their schedules.
