EARLY VOTING FAQ:
If I vote early can I also vote at the polls on Election Day?
No. Your ballot will be considered cast and you will not be eligible to vote by mail, in person or at the polls on Election Day.
When & how is an early voter's ballot cast?
Similar to Absentee ballots, Early Voting ballots are sealed by the voter in an envelope and held until Election Day. On Election Day early voting ballots are opened and scanned into the voter tabulation equipment, in the same manner as absentee ballots at OAHS.
Voting in Person at the Polls after submitting an early ballot is prohibited as outlined in 950 CMR 4 7.19.
Electioneering During Early and Absentee Voting
The Select Board adopted policy #92 with the following regulation for the period designated for in-person absentee voting and the State’s Early Voting Period:
No poster, card, handbill, placard, picture or circular intended to influence the action of the voter, other than those expressly authorized by G.L. c. 54, § 65, shall be posted, exhibited, circulated or distributed in the Town Clerk’s office, in the building where the Town Clerk’s office is located, on the walls thereof, on the premises on which the Town offices at 136 Elm Street stand within one hundred and fifty feet (150’) of the building entrance door to said Town offices.
