Early Voting will be available for the State/Presidential General Election in November

Early voting is coming to Newton and will be available for the first time for the State/Presidential General Election on November 8, 2016.  Early voting is now the law in Massachusetts for State General Elections only. 

What is early voting?  For two weeks before a State General Election, voters will be able to cast their ballots at Newton City Hall.  The Clerk’s Office will be open each day from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, and on Tuesday nights until 8:00 pm, for two weeks before the election.  Once an early voter has marked their ballot, the voter’s ballot will be held at the City Clerk’s Office until Election Day and then be distributed to the appropriate polling location for counting. 

The advantage in early voting is that voters will be able to vote their ballot on an expanded schedule and not be limited to voting just on Election Day.
