Annual Town Election Rescheduled to June 6, 8AM-8PM

Post Date:04/28/2020
Pursuant to Chapter 45 of the Acts of 2020, on March 31st, Arlington’s Select Board unanimously voted to set the new date for Arlington’s Annual Town Election to Saturday, June 6, 2020, 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. By law, Voter registration is also extended to May 27, 2020. Residents are further advised of additional means of voting for the rescheduled election given present public health concerns:

First, any resident “taking precaution related to COVID-19 in response to guidance from a medical professional, local or state health official, or any civil authority” is considered eligible for absentee balloting for this election only per section 4 of Chapter 45.

Second, residents will be able to request ballots for “early voting” exclusively by mail per section 5 of Chapter 45.

In the coming weeks, the Town Clerk’s Office will develop further guidance on both absentee and early-voting-by-mail, including application processes for receiving and honoring such requests. For election information please visit arlingtonma.gov/election.
