Town Clerk Has Message for Residents Voting by Mail

If you are currently registered as an Unenrolled Voter (commonly known as Independent) you must indicate which party ballot you would like to receive. If you do not provide a party ballot selection on your application, a primary ballot will not be mailed to you.

• In a primary election, a voter who is NOT registered in a political party (Unenrolled) must specify the party ballot type of choice on the application to vote by mail or in person voting (early or on election day).

• We are unable to process applications for Unenrolled voters who do not select a party ballot type on their application.

• Unenrolled voters who select a party ballot type do not become registered in that party, they remain Unenrolled voters.

• Voters who are registered in one of the two political parties (Democrat, Republican) MUST take that party ballot and are not given a choice of ballot type.

If you have already submitted your application and did not choose a party ballot, you can contact us at or 978-640-4355 with your party ballot selection or if you have any questions. You may also complete a new Vote by Mail application with your party ballot selection from Your selection must be received before the deadline to apply for a vote by mail ballot on August 29 at 5 p.m.
