Want to run for elected office? Nomination papers are now available!

Dear fellow Hanoverians:

Hanover Town Clerk Catherine Harder-Bernier announced today that nomination
papers are now available for the Annual Town Election scheduled to be held
May 8th, 2021. Due to COVID-19 restrictions and the fact that Hanover Town
Hall is closed to the public, interested candidates need to make an
appointment to pull papers. “As a result,” Harder-Bernier noted,
“nomination papers are available two weeks earlier than they usually are,
to allow extra time for interested candidates to connect with the Town
Clerk’s Office.”

“Election Day is set for May 8th and signed nomination papers are due
March 19th, 2021. At this point in the year, there are a total of nine
anticipated open seats. On the ballot this spring will be elections for
two members of the Board of Selectmen for a three year term, two members of
the School Committee for a three year term, one member of the Board of
Assessors for a three year term, one member of the Planning Board for a
five year term, one Board of Health member for a three year term, one
Trustee of the Public Library for a three year term, and one Moderator for
a one year term”, continued Harder-Bernier.

Interested residents are encouraged to contact the Town Clerk’s Office,
any of the related departments, or sitting members of the board or
committee they are interested in becoming a part of in order to gain more
information about an open position.

To run for office, candidates only need to obtain 50 signatures of
registered Hanover voters in order to be placed on the ballot. Candidates
for office have until Friday, March 19th to submit the signed nomination
papers to the Registrar’s Office for signature certification. Attached
please find the Spring Election Calendar for more information.
