Hingham citizens wishing to vote in the Nov. 8 state election have a number of different options: vote by mail, vote early in person, absentee vote, or vote in-person on election day.
In-person early voting is available at Town Hall from Oct. 22 through Nov. 4.
As an option to early voting, all registered voters qualify to vote by mail. All Hingham voters who have not already chosen to receive a vote by mail ballot for the Nov. 8 state election have been sent a vote-by mail application from the Secretary of State’s office. The Town Clerk’s office will process the applications and mail the requested ballots to voters.
"Early by-mail voting makes it easier to exercise your fundamental right as an American," Falvey said. "We're asking Hingham citizens to minimize the costs associated with early by-mail voting by returning the ballots they requested!"
Falvey noted that more than 1,200 residents asked for and received early mail-in ballots for the September Primary but did not return them.
In-person voting for the state election will take place Tuesday, Nov. 8, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Check the Town Clerk link on the Town of Hingham website for full details and voting locations.
