To look up your voter-registration status, especially if you recently moved or changed your registration from one community to another, click here >> You are eligible to vote only in the community where you are now registered.
Note: New precinct boundaries need to be updated in the state database, so residents can’t check now and know what precinct they will be in, which is especially important for people considering running for Town Meeting.
The town clerk plans a mailing in February to all registered voters confirming precinct and polling location (in case any of them are changed by the Select Board following reprecincting). The census mailing will be delayed until the clerk's office has the new precinct numbers so the census will indicate the correct precincts.

You can register online through the secretary of state website if you have a Mass. drivers license.
