Reminder: One Week to Get Absentee Ballot for State Primary
The Massachusetts State Primary is set for Thursday, September 8, and anyone who wants to vote but can’t make it to the polls can pick up an absentee ballot.
The Burlington Town Clerk’s office has absentee ballots for those who will be out of town, can’t get to the polls due to a physical disability or have a religious commitment on election day.
Absentee ballots are available in the clerk’s office and will be mailed to those who have applied. Voters may apply and vote in the office. The deadline to apply is noon on Wednesday, September 7.
“Voters may apply and vote in person at the Town Clerk's office or through the mail,” Warfield said. “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.”
Hospitalized voters must have been admitted after noon of the 5th day before the election. They must apply themselves and designate in writing who may hand carry the ballot to them. Applications can be made anytime, however, the ballot must be returned by the close of the poll.
The mailing address for the office is: Office of the Town Clerk, Town of Burlington, 29 Center Street, Burlington, MA 01803. It’s office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday and 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday.
The state primary polls will be at Burlington High School and voting will run from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
