We are excited to announce that all registered voters will be able vote before Election Day for the first time ever in Massachusetts. Early voting will begin on October 24th and continue through November 4th, 2016. Prior to the enactment of this new law, the only way a registered voter was allowed to vote prior to Election Day was through absentee voting. Although absentee voting will still be available for registered voters who qualify, only those who will be absent from their city or town on Election Day, or have a disability that prevents them from going to the polls, or have a religious belief preventing the same, are legally allowed to vote by absentee ballot.
Early voting can be done in person at the Hanson Town Hall, 542 Liberty Streetduring regular business hours. Our business hours are Monday, Wednesday and Thursday 8 am – 5 pm; Tuesday, 8 am – 8 pm; and Friday, 8 am – 12 noon. Voting may be done any time during those hours from October 24th – November 4th.
Please note, however, once a voter has cast an early voting ballot, the voter may no longer vote at the polls on Election Day.
