[ARCHIVED] LAST DAY TO REGISTER TO VOTE FOR THE NOVEMBER 3, 2015 - SPECIAL STATE ELECTION

October 14, 2015 8:00 p.m. – voter registration deadline
Will you be voting in the upcoming state election on november 3, 2015? Are you registered to vote? Are you sure? The massachusetts city & town clerk’s association urge all residents to check their voter registration before october 14th. Even if you have been registered to vote for years, many federal and state laws impact your registration status. If you have moved, changed your name, or did not respond to the annual town census, you may encounter an issue at the polls. Avoid the long lines, check your registration now!
When you register to vote, either in person, by mail or at the registry of motor vehicles, you should receive a confirmation notice from the local town clerk’s office. If not, your registration may not have reached the office. If you did not send back your census form and did not respond to the inactivation notice, then your name will not be on the active voting list.
If there is an issue with your voting status, in some cases, you will have to fill out an affidavit and show identification at the polls. In other cases, you may be offered a provisional ballot that will only be cast if your registration eligibility is verified.
If you have a college student or other relative that is a registered voter away from home, a relative can apply for an absentee ballot to be mailed to him/her. Please apply early!
Town clerks want all eligible citizens to be able to cast their ballot. Please act now! Don’t wait! Check your voting status!! Remember – october 14th is the deadline! Office hours at the whitman town clerk’s office are
