From the Town Clerk


September has always been a month of changes. Summer vacations are over and it’s the start of many new and exciting things. Whether it’s going back to a familiar school or attending a new school or college, there’s new people and challenges to look forward to. It’s also the start of Autumn on September 23, when we welcome the cooler weather, with apple and pumpkin picking, football games, and delicious cider donuts. I hope everyone gets off to a new fresh start this month.

The Town Clerk’s office is cleaning up from the summer, finishing up the last of the late census and dog licenses forms. This time of the year is busy with marriage intention papers for Fall weddings. We are also starting to prepare for not only a Special Election on October 24 and a Town Meeting November 13 but the many elections to be held in 2024.

There will be a Special Election on Tuesday October 24 to see if the Town of Seekonk and 10 other communities will approve 285.9 million for the building of a new Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School. The other communities are; Sherborn, Medfield, Walpole, Millis, Medway, Norfolk, Wrentham, Plainville, Franklin, North Attleboro. The Town of Seekonk’s website has a link on the front page directing you to the Tri-county website. There you will be able to read about the project in detail and see a rendering of what it will look like.  Voting will either take place at the High School or Town Hall that has yet to be determined. There won’t be any early voting. This office will keep the public informed through the Town’s website of any changes, as the election date gets closer if you have questions. Please do not hesitate to call our office. 508-336-2920.

Lorraine Sorel the Assistant Town Clerk and I will be attending the Massachusetts Town Clerk conference in Springfield, MA on September 21. This year’s focus will be Elections 2024.  Please see the below a chart of election dates to remember for 2024.

If you have any questions or concerns about your voting status you can either check with us in the Town Clerk’s office or on line:

Have wonderful month.
Florice Craig, Town Clerk & Lorraine Sorel, Asst. Town Clerk
