Register to vote!

Dear fellow Hanoverians:

Hanover Town Clerk Catherine Harder-Bernier announced that Wednesday,
August 15th is the last day to register to vote in the State Primary
Election. The Registrar’s/Town Clerk’s Office will be open from 8:00
a.m. – 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday the 15th.

Thanks to new legislation that went into effect in 2016, any Hanover
citizen who is sixteen years of age or older is eligible to register to
vote. Citizens who will be eighteen on or before Election Day, September
4th, 2018 will then be eligible to actually vote. Once registered and 18
years of age, individuals will be eligible to vote in all elections
thereafter, including the State (Gubernatorial) Election in November.

Citizens of Hanover may conveniently register to vote or change their party
status on-line, by mail or in person. The link for on-line registration is
here: . If residents choose to register
by mail they should download the “Massachusetts Mail-In Voter
Registration Form” found here: and mail the completed
form to the Hanover Town Clerk’s Office.

If residents wish to register to vote in person, they may do so at two
convenient locations: Hanover Town Hall or the Registry of Motor Vehicles.

“The State Primary Election is the precursor to the larger State Election
in November, but it nevertheless features a number of interesting
elections,” said Harder-Bernier. “The Republican ballot has races for
Governor, Senator in Congress, and Attorney General. There are also
contested races on the Democratic ballot for Governor and State Secretary,
among others. The Libertarians fielded just one candidate for their newly
created party, but I expect two unusual write-in campaigns on the
Democratic ballot to draw interest.”

Questions may be directed to Hanover Town Clerk Catherine Harder-Bernier at
(781) 826-5000 x1079 or by e-mail at
, or Senior Registrar Nancy Goldthwait at (781) 826-5000 x1082 or .
