[ARCHIVED] VOTER REGISTRATION

survey ps

The Town Clerk of Winchester reminds residents that Wednesday, February 12th is the deadline to register to vote if they want to participate in the Massachusetts Presidential Primary on March 3rd


February 12th is also the deadline for registered voters who wish to change their party enrollment either to another party or to “unenrolled,” which is commonly referred to as “independent.”  Voters affiliated with a party must pull that parties ballot on Primary Election Day. There will be four ballot styles on Election Day, Democrat, and Republican (which are the major parties) and Libertarian and Green Rainbow (which are minor parties)

 

With spirited contests in both parties, pervasive advertising and intense coverage in early primary states, some voters may want to vote for a candidate in a different party from the one they are registered in now. To do that, however, the voter must switch to the other party or to “unenrolled” status by 8 p.m. on February 12th.


Unenrolled voters or voters enrolled in political designations can ask for ANY party ballot on Primary Day, but someone registered in a party can only vote on that party’s ballot. A Democrat cannot take a Republican ballot, and a Republican cannot take a Democratic one.


Town Hall will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on February 12th for voters who wish to change their party registration status or for persons wishing to register for the first time.


Persons who are United States Citizens, residents of Massachusetts, and who will be at least 18 years old on or before March 3RD are eligible to register. Those meeting these qualifications who have a Massachusetts Driver’s License can submit their registration online at www.RegisterToVoteMA.com. Those registering by mail should have their form postmarked before the deadline of February 12th.
