HOW TO REGISTER TO VOTE

FOUR WAYS TO REGISTER TO VOTE--each requires proof of age, citizenship, and domicile, by document or affidavit.

 
  • You may complete the voter registration forms at the town clerk's office prior to the Supervisors of the Checklist last session scheduled to be held before the election. You are registered to vote when the Supervisors of the Checklist have reviewed and approved your application. 
  • You may request voter registration forms and instructions from the Town Clerk before requesting an absentee ballot. You are registered to vote when the Supervisors of the Checklist have reviewed and approved your application.                                                                                                                                                                                                  
  • You may also register to vote with the Supervisors of the Checklist. They are required to meet at designated times to accept registrations and changes in party affiliation. These times are posted in the local newspaper, posted outside the Vet's Hall and the Town Hall.

  • The person plans to be absent on the day of the election from the town where the voter is domiciled. 
  • Of a disability.
