Duties & Responsibilities

The Registrars of Voters are elected officials of the Town, whose duty is to administer the election process according to State Statute and under the direction of the Secretary of State.

The Registrars have the responsibility of keeping the Registry list current at all times. They receive applications from new voters, admit those who qualify and add their names to the Registry in a timely fashion. Removals from the list are made due to electors deaths and people moving out of town.

Office Hours are Monday 10:00 am - 1:00 pm.
