Voter Registration Information

 

Online Voter Registration Now Available

(Click on the image below for details)

Attention Voters:

Your enrollment as a voter will affect the party primary in which you can vote at State Primary Elections.  There are two political parties in Massachusetts. If you are enrolled in one of these political parties, you may only vote that party's ballot at a Primary Election.  If you are registered as a Democrat or Republican, you will find the following letter codes next to your name on your 2021 Census forms.  Look in the last column on the right, marked “PARTY” .

D - Democratic Party     

R - Republican 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 – list @ https://www.sec.state.ma.us/ele/elepar/paridx.htm) 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 elections or town meeting, must register by the deadlines listed above. The Registrars will hold a voter registration session from 8:00am to 8:00pm on each final voter registration date to accommodate last minute registrations. You may also register during regular business hours at Town Hall, register online 24/7 @ www.registertovoteMA.com  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 ballot applications in person 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.  For Vote by Mail/Absentee Ballots, deadline to file an application is 5:00 p.m. on the 4th business day before the election.

The absentee ballot request form is also available online at the following link:

Any questions regarding voter eligibility or requests for mail-in voter registration forms may be directed to the Town Clerk’s Office.

Election Advisory #20-10:  Election Observers and Poll Watchers at Polls and Processing of Early Voting Ballots

Any person, with the exception of a candidate named on the ballot, can be an observer.  However, those persons representing campaigns are given priority due to limited space in the polling facility and early voting location.

Any person who wants to observe any part of the election process MUST provide advance notice to Laura Schwall, Rehoboth Town Clerk by 2:00 PM the day prior to the scheduled election.  Please email to [email protected].  Observers should notify the Town Clerk/Election Official in writing as soon as possible to request access. 

Please be advised that given space limitations, capacity restrictions on gatherings and requirements for social-distancing, election officials will limit the number of observers and will require specific advance registration. Access will be approved IF the polling/processing facility has sufficient space to accommodate the observer and maintain social distancing.
