ANNUAL TOWN ELECTION IN CONCORD
TUESDAY, MARCH 25, 2014
Annual Town Election Scheduled for March 25, 2014
Concord’s Annual Town Election is scheduled for Tuesday, March 25, 2014. Polls will be open from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm. All residents who are registered to vote in Concord are eligible to vote in this election. The voter registration deadline has already passed, so if you are not registered to vote, then it is too late to do so for this election. If you are uncertain about your registration status or polling location, contact the Town Clerk’s Office. A sample ballot is available for viewing on the Clerk’s web site.
What’s On the Ballot?
At the Annual Town Election we will be voting for Town Moderator (one position, one-year term); Board of Selectmen (one position, three-year term); School Committee (one position, three-year term); and Concord Housing Authority (one position, five-year term). There is a contested race for School Committee, with two individuals running for the one open spot. There are no announced candidates for Concord Housing Authority. Contact the Town Clerk’s Office if you are interested in a write-in campaign for Housing Authority.
Availability of Absentee Ballots
If you are unable to get to the polls in person on Election Day due to absence from Concord during polling hours, disability, or religious beliefs, then you are eligible to vote by absentee ballot. Absentee ballots are not available just for convenience in Massachusetts. Ballots are now available in the Town Clerk’s Office. The deadline for applying for a ballot is Noon on Monday, March 24th.
Absentee balloting may be done either in person at the Clerk’s Office during office hours, or by mail. No ballots may be carried out from the Clerk’s Office. The Clerk’s Office is open Mondays through Fridays, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Completed ballots must be received in the Town Clerk’s Office by 8:00 pm on Election Day, so if the ballot is to be mailed, be sure to allow ample time for delivery both ways. Do not return absentee ballots to the polls. An absentee ballot application may be downloaded from the Clerk’s web site, or you may send a fax or e-mail requesting that a ballot be mailed to you—use of the form is not required. Family members may apply on behalf of another family or household member who is unable to get to the polls in person.
