2012 State Primaries: The Ballot

Breakdown of the November Primary ballot, and more information on how voting works. Polls open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. today for voting on the 2011 Town Election. Mouse over the map for more information on the polling locations indicated by pins.

If you're not sure which precinct you are in, check the "Where do I vote, MA" site and input your address.

To cast your votes, go to the check-in table at your polling place and tell the poll worker your street, house number and then name (in that order). They will hand you a ballot and provide you with your instructions. If you are not listed but should be, you need to fill in a "Provisional Ballot." Poll workers will have more information.

Scroll down to find each candidate listed on the ballot. Selectmen first, then Trustees of the Public Library, School Committee, Housing Authority and Town Meeting Members organized by Precinct.
