From the Town Clerk

Posted

It’s already August, the summer is going by fast. I hope everyone is enjoying the warm weather and getting out and enjoying the many beautiful beaches, parks, and lakes we have here in New England.

State Primary September 2, 2022 (The day after Labor Day).

Save time by being aware of these six things before going to the polls.

Are you registered to vote?
The deadline to register to vote in the State Primary election is Saturday August 27 @5pm.  The Town Clerk’s office will be open that day from 9am -5pm, for in person voter registration. To register to vote online go to: www.sec.state.ma.us/ovr/. It is also the last day to make changes to your party affiliation. The State Primary is a partisan election and you must vote on the ballot for the party, in which you are registered. If you are registered as Unenrolled, you must choose which party ballot you want to vote on.

Is your voter status “active”?
Voters must return their signed street list census form annually to the Town Clerk’s office to maintain an active voter status. Inactive voters are still eligible to vote but will be required to complete additional forms and show ID at the polls in order to vote. We recently sent out a second census post card mailing, if you received this, please return it immediately so we can update you to the active list. 

Can I vote EARLY in person or by mail?
Yes! You can vote, early either in person or by mail. The schedule is below. You can vote by mail by submitting an application to the Town Clerk’s office no later than 5pm on the 5th business day before the election. For the 9/6 State Primary, this day is: Monday August 29, at 5:00pm. Applications can be found on the Town Clerk’s website page or the Secretary of States website.

Where do I vote on Election Day?
All four precincts vote at: 261 Arcade Ave. Seekonk High School gymnasium.

What is my voting precinct? 
If you are unsure of your voting precinct you can go to the town website and look for the street listing by precinct or you can check with our office. (508) 336-2920.

What will I be voting on?
Voters are encouraged to educate themselves on the many races and questions that will appear on their ballot prior to voting.

Please visit: www.sec.state.ma.us/ele/eleupcomingelections/upcoming-elections.htm

An informed voter reduces the amount of time spent in the voting booth and reduces lines and crowding on election day. A sample ballot will be available to view at the Town Clerk’s office, and on the Town’s website: www.seekonk-ma.gov

This ceremony will mark the 21 Anniversary in which terrorists hijacked four airplanes and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States. We hope you plan on attending to honor not only the people who lost their lives on 9/11 but to pay tribute to and thank our Public Safety employees and veterans.  The time has not been set yet, please look for it later in the month to be announced.
