Town Meeting Day will be Tuesday, March 2, 2021.
Due to the pandemic, the legislature passed a bill which eliminates the need for petitions to be filed in 2021 and instead, candidates must only submit their consent form to the clerk’s office prior to 5:00 on January 25th. Although City Hall is closed, we are accepting consent forms by mail, left in our drop box outside the main door to city hall or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. All forms must be received by 5:00 on January 25th. The consent form can be found by clicking local-candidate-consent-pdf.pdf (revize.com).
The following town and School Offices on the ballot:
City Council - 2 year term
City Council - 3 year term

Pursuant to the temporary authority granted in Act 48 (2021) that allows every municipality the authority to send every active registered voter their early ballot in the mail, both the City Council and the School Board chose this option for the safety of our voters. The cost of mailing these early ballots in covered by the Federal CARES Act fund.
