Next Election: Presidential Primary, Tuesday, March 6, 2012
Wednesday, February 15, 2012, at 8:00 pm, is the last day to register to vote in the Presidential Primary. If you are not already registered, the Election Commission at Newton City Hall is open on the last evening to register until 8:00 pm. You can register to vote either in person at the Election Commission office, Room 106, Newton City Hall, or by mail. Mail-in voter registration forms are also available at the Newton Free Library. For further information, call the Election Commission office at 617-796-1350.
Due to the re-precincting process, some voters will be voting in different polling places in March. Your polling place will be identified on the upcoming census forms. In addition, voters can call the Election Commission Office at 617-796-1350, or visit the website at http://www.newtonma.gov/wpinternet/index.asp and enter your address.
To receive an absentee ballot, voters will need to visit the Election Commission in person or online. Even if a voter received absentee ballots in 2011, he or she will need to sign up again, and can do so for all of the 2012 elections at the same time. Unenrolled absentee voters voting in the primary election will need to let the Election Department know which ballot they want (Democrat, Republican, Green-Rainbow).
