Auburn announces early voting information for special election

by | Aug 5, 2020

The Town Clerk’s office has announced early voting for the September 1 state primary and Auburn special election.

Auburn voters will receive two ballots; one Town Special Election ballot to fill two vacancies (a 1-year unexpired term and a full 3-year term) on the Board of Selectmen and a statewide primary ballot for your selected party affiliation. Unenrolled voters can choose Democratic, Green Party,  Libertarian, or Republican ballots. Local ballots can be found on the Town Clerk web page.

In person early voting will be held at Auburn High School on:

Saturday 8/22    8a-12p

Sunday 8/23      8a-12p

Monday 8/24     9a-6p

Tuesday 8/25     9a-3p

Wednesday 8/26,  9a-3p

Thursday 8/27   9a-3p

Friday 8/28        8a-12p

Early voting can also be completed by mail. All voters who were registered by July 1, 2020 were mailed a vote-by-mail postcard application from the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s office. The deadline to request a mail-in early ballot is 5pm on August 26. You can download an application here:

On election day, September 1, polls will be open from 7am to 8pm at the Auburn High School gymnasium for all precincts.

Absentee ballots, while a similar process to early voting ballots, do have different requirements. Visit the Secretary of the Commonwealth web page for more information about voting absentee.

All ballots must be returned by the close of polls on Election Day to the Clerk’s Office. For more information or questions, call the town clerk’s office at 508-832-7701.
