CHANGES FOR ANNUAL TOWN MEETING AND LOCAL ELECTIONS

If you want to register to vote in Pelham you can go to https://www.sec.state.ma.us>ele>eleifv>howreg   This will take you the SEC page with voter information .

The Local Election and Annual Town Meeting have been postponed again by the Board of Selectmen.  The Annual Town Meeting will now be June 27, 2020 beginning at 9 AM and the Local Election will now be June 30, 2020, from 11 AM - 7 PM.    Just as an FYI: Absentee Ballots will be available for the Local Election as usual. For this Local Election only, the Governor has signed special legislation allowing the postponing of elections, and allowing  Early Voting Ballots by mail only for this local election . The 2020 Municipal Election Ballot Application is attached below.  I can also accept any hand written signature request for one, as long as it has the voter information necessary.  There will not be Early Voting in person.  Usually early Early Voting is only available for State and Federal Elections.  Absentee Ballots can still be requested by a family member but Early Voting Ballots cannot, they must be requested with a actual signature from each voter.  ALSO, PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE WILL BE VACANCIES / BLANKS on the ballots as some incumbents were not able to collect signatures in time due to the COVID 19 restrictions.   

  Anyone with any questions are encouraged to call the Town Clerk or email the Town Clerk Office. (413-253-0512) or pelhamtownclerk@comcast.net
