Vote by Mail

Legislation to extend early voting by mail for municipal elections held on or before June 30, 2021 has been enacted under Chapter 5 of the Acts of 2021.

Vote by Mail applications must be delivered to the Town Clerk’s Office no later than 4 (four) business days before the election. An application for an April 3, 20201 Annual Town Election ballot must be received by the Town Clerk’s Office no later than Tuesday, March 30, 2021 by 5:00 pm. Vote by mail applications may be downloaded here.

Applications for absentee ballots are available to be downloaded and printed, but you may also request an absentee ballot by writing a letter the Town Clerk’s Office, if you do not have access to a printer. Be sure to include your name and address, the election(s) for which you are requesting a ballot, and your signature. If you need the ballot mailed somewhere other than your home, be sure to provide that address.

Completed absentee and early ballot applications must be submitted Town Clerk’s Office, 20 Centre Street, Middleborough, MA 02346. Applications may be mailed, hand-delivered to the Town Clerk's Office or Annex Building Town Drop Box located at 20 Centre Street, faxed to (508) 946-2308, or emailed to vote@middleborough.com. If you are emailing your application, you must be able to send an image of the application as an attachment, either by scanning it or by taking a picture of it. A hand-written signature must be visible.

All mail-in ballots must be returned to the Town Clerk’s Office by the close of polls on the day of the election – a postmark is not sufficient. Absentee ballots may be mailed or hand-delivered by a family member. Please be sure to allow enough time for the mailing of your application and your ballot.
