Registered voters should be getting their application to vote by mail in the Sept. 1 primary early next week in their mailbox. The mailed application from the Secretary of State’s office will be personalized to each voter with a barcode which can easily be scanned by the Newton City Clerk staff.
Once you receive your mail-in ballot application, you will have to (1) complete the application and (2) return it to the Newton City Clerk’s Office.
There are 3 ways to return the completed application, but the first two are preferred because of the barcode:
- Mail it to the City of Newton Clerk’s Office (1000 Commonwealth Avenue, Newton, MA 02459)
- Place in the white drop box in front of City Hall
- Scan and e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Notably, applications for mail-in ballots must have a signature. (Applications with typed signatures will not be accepted.)
