Voter Registration Session For April 3, 2017 Annual Town Election:
Tuesday, March 14, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Attention Voters:

Your enrollment as a voter will affect the party primary in which you can vote at the September 8, State Primary.  There are four political parties in Massachusetts. If you are enrolled in one of these political parties, you will find the following letter codes on the 2016 Census forms - next to your name, in the last column on the right, marked “PARTY”:

D - Democratic Party     

R - Republican Party

J - Green-Rainbow         

CC - United Independent Party

When voting in a "Primary Election", voters who are enrolled in one of the above parties can only vote on the ballot for that party.  Voters who are unenrolled in a party (commonly known as “Independent”) will be listed with the party code “U” in the “PARTY” column of your census form. Unenrolled voters and voters who are members of Political Designations (indicated by other letter codes) can choose which party’s ballot they would like to receive.

You may change your party enrollment by completing a new voter registration form in person, by mail, or online at www.RegisterToVoteMA.com.

Any unregistered voters wishing to vote in the upcoming Annual Town Election must register by March 14, 2017 to be eligible to vote in the April 3, 2017 Annual Town Election. The Registrars will hold a voter registration session from 8:00am to 8:00pm on Tuesday, March 14, 2017 to accommodate last minute registrations. You may also register during regular business hours at Town Hall or download and print a mail-in voter registration form by clicking here. Complete the form and mail to us at the Town Clerk’s Office - 148 Peck Street, Rehoboth, MA.

Absentee Ballot Applications

Applications for absentee ballots are available and may be obtained from the Town Clerk’s Office. Absentee ballots are obtained by written request only and must have the voter’s original signature. (Elections Division of the Secretary of State's Office has confirmed on 7-2-14 that a scanned SIGNED submission, which is emailed to our office, is also acceptable.) The deadline for filing absentee applications is usually 12:00pm (Noon) the day before the election.  If day before election day is a holiday or weekend, deadline is the previous workday @ 5:00 p.m.

Absentee ballot request forms are also available online at the following links:
