State Primary & Absentee Ballots

A State Primary is being held on Tuesday, September 14 for the Democratic, Republican and Libertarian Parties in Massachusetts to choose candidates for the Final Election ballot in November.  The Primary is open to all voters who are registered as a Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, or Unenrolled (formerly called “Independent”).  Those who are registered in a party may only receive their party’s ballot.  Unenrolled voters may choose any one of the three ballots. Those who are registered in a Political Designation (Green-Rainbow) will not be choosing candidates at this State Primary, so they are not eligible to vote.  All registered voters will be eligible to vote at the November 2nd State Election, where there is only one ballot.

On Election Day, September 14, the polls will be open from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm.  Absentee ballots for the State Primary Election 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 noon on Monday, September 13th.  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. 14.  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. 14.  If there are any questions, contact the Town Clerk’s Office via e-mail at or via telephone at 978-318-3080.
