Today is National Voter Registration Day
Today, September 27, 2016, volunteers all around the country are hitting the streets, holding events and storming social media urging unregistered citizens to register to vote. Don’t miss your opportunity to take part in the history-making presidential election on November 8th, be sure you are registered too.
Who can register? Citizens of the United States who are 16 or older, who are not in jail for a felony. (Note: 16 year-olds can pre-register, but you have to be 18 to vote).
I’ve already registered once; do I have to do it again? If you have moved, even just across the street, or if you have changed your name, you have to update your voter registration.
When do I register for the Presidential election? You must be registered to vote by October 19th.
How do I register to vote?
In-person: go to the Town Clerk’s office at Town Hall. Town Hall is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.
By-Mail: pick up a registration form – we have some here at the main library, at the east branch and the north branch and mail it in to Town Hall. It must be postmarked by October 19th.
