Early Voting for Presidential Primary Starts Monday

By: BNEWS

If you have made up your mind in the upcoming Presidential Primaries you don’t have to wait until Super Tuesday to cast a ballot. 

 

“We will again be having Early Voting, unlike absentee voting, early voting is for every registered voter,” Town Clerk Amy Warfield said in a release. “Registered voters do not need an excuse or reason to vote early.” 

 

In Burlington, Early Voting can be done in person at the Burlington Town Hall, 29 Center St, in the Main Hearing room on the second floor. Early Voting will be February 24 through February 28 during the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, with extended hours on Wednesday until 7 p.m. 

 

If you are not interested in early voting you can vote at the Polls on Election Day. The polling hours for Tuesday, March 3, 2020, Primary Election will be from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. All Burlington precincts vote at the Burlington High School, in the Gym around the back of the school. School will be in session that day so parking will be limited to the spaces near the gym on the back side of the High School. School is in session from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. so avoid those peak times for easier parking and access.

 

Anyone who cannot make it to the polls at all can get an absentee ballot. Absentee Voting is being conducted now at the Town Clerk’s Office until noon on Monday, March 2. Voters may apply and vote in person at the Town Clerk's Office or through the mail. If the ballot is to be mailed, apply far enough in advance so that the ballot can be mailed and returned by the close of the poll. Applications are also available at www.burlington.org by clicking the link on the front page. Absentee voting is for voters who are not able to make it to the Polls due to absence from the Town during the hours the polls are open, physical disability or religious belief.

 

If you have any questions, call the Clerk’s office at 781-270-1660.
