VOTER TIPS FOR NOVEMBER 2 STATE ELECTION
- Polls will be open from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm on Tuesday, November 2nd
- If you were registered to vote in Concord on or before October 13th, then you are eligible to vote in this election.
- If you have recently moved, have not returned the 2010 census, or have not voted in recent years, then contact the Town Clerk’s Office prior to going to the polls in order to check on your voting status. Identification with your Concord address may be required if you fall under one of these categories, so please be prepared.
- Polling places are the same as they have been for several years. Precinct 1 votes at 141 Keyes Road (Planning & Land Management Building, next to Public Works, behind Rite-Aid Pharmacy). Precincts 2 and 3 vote at Harvey Wheeler Community Center. Precinct 4 votes at Ripley School. Precinct 5 votes at the Hunt Gym. If you have not voted in recent years, or are unsure of your voting location, please contact the Town Clerk’s Office, or check on the Town’s Web Site.
- If you will be out of town during polling hours on Tuesday, or are unable to go to the polls in person due to disability or religious beliefs, then you may vote by absentee ballot at the Town House PRIOR TO NOON on Monday, November 1st. If you are not voting in person at the Town House, then absentee balloting must be done by mail. Allow ample time for a ballot to be mailed to the voter and returned by Election Day.
- The Town Clerk will be open for extended hours for absentee voting as follows:
Thursday, October 28th – 8:30 am to 6:00 pm
Friday, October 29th – 7:00 am to 4:30 pm
Saturday, October 30th – 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
Monday, November 1st – 8:30 am to Noon
- If you have received an absentee ballot by mail, then please return it to the Town House in Concord Center by Election Day. Do not return absentee ballots to the polls. Postmark date does not count – all absentee ballots must be received by Election Day (unless mailed from outside of the United States, in which case the postmark date by November 2nd is allowed).
- There are 4 initiative ballot questions (All Yes/No Questions). Three of these are statewide questions (summarized in the red booklet mailed to all voters a few weeks ago from the Secretary of State). The fourth is a non-binding question regarding health care as a human right in Massachusetts.
