Absentee Ballots

On Election Day, September 4, the polls will be open from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm.  Absentee ballots for the Special State Primary Election (for U.S. Congress, 5th District) are now available at the Town Clerk’s Office for residents who are unable to come to the polls in person during these hours due to 1) absence from Concord; 2) physical disability; or 3) religious belief.  The deadline for applying for an absentee ballot is 5:00 pm on Friday, August 31st.  Immediate family members may apply on behalf of a registered voter, with the ballot being mailed directly to the voter.  Absentee ballot voting may either be done in person at the Town Clerk’s Office prior to the Election, or by mail.  Completed absentee ballots should be returned to the Town Clerk’s Office at the Town House by 8:00 pm on Sept. 4th.  If requesting a mailed ballot, please allow ample time for mailing so that the completed ballot is received by the close of polls on Sept. 4th.

At the Sept. 4th Primary Election, one candidate will be chosen to represent each of the four political parties in Massachusetts at the final election on October 16—Democratic, Republican, Green-Rainbow and Working Families Party.  Voters enrolled in any of those parties may choose only that ballot at the Primary.  Voters registered as “Unenrolled” (formerly called “Independent”) may choose among any of the four ballots.  Voters enrolled in any of the other political designations in Massachusetts (Libertarian, Socialist, etc.) are eligible to vote in the October 16th Election, but not in the September 4th Primary.  If there are any questions about your party affiliation or voting eligibility, contact the Town Clerk’s Office via e-mail at or via telephone at 978-318-3080.
