If you don’t want to wait until November 8th to cast your vote in the state election, you don’t have to.
The Town Clerk’s office has issued announcements about In-Person Early Voting, which begins this weekend, and Vote by Mail.
While I’m sharing those details, I’m also sharing who is on our ballot.
The deadline to request a Vote by Mail ballot is 5:00PM on November 1. You can do that online here or download this application and mail/bring it to the Town Clerk’s office at the Town House (17 Common Street).
To vote in-person, you can also head to the Town House, Saturday, October 22nd – Friday, November 4th. The hours are Mondays – Saturdays 8:00 AM – 5:00 pm, with an extension to 7:00 pm on Tuesdays. (The office is closed on Sundays.)
Election day voting will take place at Trottier Middle School from 6:30 am to 8:00 pm. That’s at 49 Parkerville Road. (If you received a mail-in ballot but decide to vote at Trottier instead, please leave your ballot at home.)**
Below is a reminder of who is on Southborough voters’ ballots this time around. They include some third party candidates that I was unaware had qualified.
In addition, there are Questions on the ballot. For details on those, click here.
- Governor and Lt Governor
- Attorney General
- Secretary of State
- Representative in Congress – 2nd District
- Governor’s Councillor – Third District
- Marilyn M. Pettito Devaney, Democratic, Incumbent (and uncontested)
- Senator in General Court – Middlesex & Worcester District
- Representative in General Court – 19th Worcester District
- District Attorney – Middle District
- Joseph D. Early, Jr., Democratic, Incumbent (and uncontested)
- Sheriff – Worcester County
- Lewis G. Evangelidis, Republican
- David M. Fontaine, Democratic
*McGovern is currently serving in U.S. Congress for the 2nd District, but under redistricting, Southborough will newly be part of that District. (We have been part of the 5th District represented by Katherine Clark.)
Hegarty also asked me to alert readers that if you received a ballot by mail, you can still choose to vote in-person at the Trottier Gym on election day instead. But you can’t bring that ballot to the gym.
