Annual Town Election and Annual Town Meeting

Dear fellow Hanoverians:

It’s that time of the year! First, please return your Vote by Mail ballot.
We have received only 555 out of 962 requested early or absentee ballots
as of June 18th. We’ve got some work to do, Hanover! Let’s do this!
Ballots can be returned in the front door mail slot of Town Hall by 12 noon
on Friday, June 26th, or directly to the polls at HHS from 12 noon – 6:00
p.m. on Saturday, June 27th. Ballots must be returned to the polls by 6:00
p.m. on the 27th in order to be counted. Postmarks don’t count!

Next, the Annual Town Election will be Saturday, June 27th from 12 noon to
6:00 p.m. at Hanover High School. There’s a race for Selectman, and a late
write-in for School Committee made that a race too. Social distancing and
masks will be expected and please bring your own black pen. Plan to wait
in line so that we can maintain social distancing. A sample ballot and
additional information are both found here:

And finally, read this for Town Meeting information. A Special Town
Meeting to close out FY ’20 will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, June 29th
at Starland, 645 Washington Street. Yes, Starland. Not Hanover High.
Here’s the warrant:
. That will be followed by the Annual Town Meeting on the same night,
Monday, June 29th at 7:30 p.m. also at Starland, 645 Washington Street.
Yes, you heard that right, Starland. It’s a big place – enter down by the
mini-golf check-in area! Here’s the warrant:
. Get there early. Plan to wait in line. Masks are expected; chairs
will be 10 feet apart…on purpose. We want to keep you safe and healthy!

This is surely the wackiest Annual Town Election and Annual Town Meeting
year…in our lifetimes. Don’t let that get in the way of your voice being
heard! See you there!
