Town Clerk Debra Gremo said in a statement Monday. “This year only for the town election due to the COVID-19 you may avoid the polls and vote early by mail. To vote early by mail you will need to fill out an Early Voting application to be able to receive a ballot by mail. Applications can be mailed, or hand-delivered, by putting in the drop box in the rear of the Town Hall building and may also be submitted electronically by fax or email, as long as your signature is visible.”

The Clerk also noted in her statement, “The current pandemic has required us to make modifications to ensure a safe and successful voting process for all voters and election staff. On Friday, May 1st Governor Baker issued an Executive Order requiring masks in public if social distancing cannot be maintained. We will be following social distancing guidelines both inside and outside of the polling place. Additionally, ongoing sanitizing of all voting booths, equipment and voting machines will occur throughout the day. All Voters are encouraged to wear a facial covering.”
