Early Voting

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.

To be eligible to vote in the November 8thState Election, you must register to vote or make any necessary changes to your voter registration by October 19th, 2016.

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 pmTuesday, 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.

Update on the High Street Tank Rehabilitation 7/28/2016

The Hanson Water Department would like to update residents on the status of the High Street Tank Rehabilitation Project.  The results from the water test have been received and the water in the tower may now be released into our distribution.  This evening we will return to the Hanson water supply and disconnect from Brockton.  Please be aware we anticipate that there will be discolored water during this transition due to the change in flow of water.  Bottled water is still available at the Water Department for customers that experience discoloration.  The water ban remains in effect and will be reconsidered after the system has settled down.

Update on High Street Water Tank Project and Water Ban

Please be advised that the tank is still being filled.  While we have turned on some of Hanson's wells to compensate filling the storage tank, it is still a slow process in order to avoid discolored water, we anticipate at this rate it may take another week.  Once the tank is full to capacity, the tank will still need to be chlorinated and tested.  The water ban remains in effect until further notice.
