Primary Election - Voting info - REMINDER
The new election law passed by the General Court and Signed by the Governor has significantly expanded early voting, by-mail and in-person. Due to occupancy issues at Hopkinton Town Hall, the Board of Registrars voted on 08/04/2020 to move early voting in person for the Primary to the Hopkinton Senior Center at 28 Mayhew Street. Voters will not use the main entrance and will enter through the library door and will exit through the side door once they have voted. Mask wearing as well as social distancing will be required.
The hours at the Senior Center will be as follows:
● Saturday (08/22) and Sunday (08/23) - 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM
● Monday (08/24), Wednesday (08/26), and Thursday (08/27) - 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM
● Tuesday (08/25) - 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM
● Friday (08/28) - 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM
This will serve as an addition to mail-in early voting and in person voting at the polls on the day of the Primary to better spread out voting and limit potential exposure. To review the Specimen Ballots, click following link: https://www.hopkintonma.gov/SpecimenBallotsPacket.pdf
