HINGHAM UPDATES - 2020 Town Meeting is Saturday, June 20th and Town Election is June 27th.
Due to the COVID-19 state of emergency, the Board of Selectmen voted to move Town Meeting to Saturday, June 20, 2020 at 2:00 pm with a raindate of Sunday, June 21, 2020 at 2:00 pm. The meeting will take place outdoors on the High School Multi-Purpose Athletic Field.
The Town Election is rescheduled for Saturday, June 27, 2020.
Absentee Ballots are available. Under existing Massachusetts law, a voter only qualifies to vote absentee if they will be absent from the city or town during the voting hours, a religious belief prevents them from going the polling place or a physical disability prevents them from going to the polling place. The new law specifies that any person taking a precaution related to COVID-19 qualifies for an absentee ballot by reason of physical disability. This would include those who are sick, self-quarantined, or simply choosing not to go to a public place for their own safety or for a family member’s safety.
