Final Day to Register for State-Wide Primary Election
Town Clerk's office will stay open until 8 p.m. to assist potential voters.
Today is the final day that residents can register to vote in the state party primary election, according to Belmont Town Clerk Ellen Cushman.
If a resident is not already a registered voter, they will need to file their voter registration form with the Town Clerk’s office by the registration deadlines:
The Town Clerk’s office in Town Hall will be open until 8 p.m. to assist voters.
If a resident thinks they’re a registered voter, it’s a good idea to check if that is a fact AND check if they are listed at the correct current address. This will make the voting process for these busy elections much quicker by facilitating the voter check-in step.
The Town Clerk’s office and Board of Registrars of Voters have placed a current voter list on the Town’s website. The list is alphabetical and only includes names and voting addresses.
"We ask you to check the list; if there is ANY change of your voter information, please notify the Town Clerk’s office in writing before the deadlines shown above," said Cushman.
The staff from the Town Clerk’s office will be accepting voter registrations and absentee ballot requests at Meet Belmont, Aug. 28, in the Chenery Middle School beginning at 6 p.m. Stop by with your questions.
If a voter will be out of Belmont on either of the election days and are unable to vote in person, Cushman said they should consider filing a request in writing for an absentee ballot to be mailed or vote in-person absentee beginning mid-August.
Check the Town Clerk’s website for exact dates and absentee requirements.
As always, the Town Clerk’s office is available and happy to answer your questions so please feel free to phone the office at 617-993-2600 or via email.
