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.  This year, from October 24 through November 4, Newton voters will be able to cast a ballot for the November 8, 2016 at the following times and locations:

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.

Absentee Ballots
Absentee Ballots for the November 8, 2016 State General Election will be available approximately 30 days before the election.
