Presidential Election - Nov 8, 2016 - KNOW BEFORE YOU GO




Save Time. Avoid Aggravation.  

Know these 5 things BEFORE going to the polls by simply clicking the KNOW BEFORE YOU GO TO THE POLLS banner


1. Are you a registered voter?

The deadline to register to vote in the Presidential election is Wednesday, October 19, 2016.  The Town Clerk's Office will be open on this date from 8AM - 8PM.


2. Is your voter status "active" ?

Voters must return their signed street list census form annual to the Town Clerks office to maintain an active voter status.  Inactive voters are still eligible to vote but will be required to complete additional forms and show an ID at the polls in order to vote.  To avoid having to complete additional paperwork at the polls, voters who appear as inactive can change their status to active by stopping by the Town Clerks Office to sign a census form in person up until Friday, October 21st.  Changes to the voting lists cannot be made after the deadline of October 21st.


3. Where do I vote?

The Town of Walpole has 3 polling locations listed below. There is NO voting at Walpole High School.   

Precincts 1 & 2   Old Post Road School - 99 Old Post Road

Precincts 3, 4 & 5   Blackburn Hall  -  30 Stone Street

Precincts 6, 7 & 8   Fisher School  - 65 Gould Street


4. What is my voting Precinct?

Each polling location is divided into precincts and voters will appear on the voting list only in the precinct in which their street is part of.  Due to the crowds expected for this election, voters are strongly encouraged to already know which precinct they will be voting in before entering the polling location.  


5. What will I be voting on?

Voters are encouraged to educate themselves on the many races and questions that will appear on their ballot PRIOR to arriving at the polls.  The KNOW BEFORE YOU GO TO THE POLLS banner above will also give voters the option to view their ballot.  Educated voters will reduce the amount of time necessary in the voting booths and reduce lines and crowding on election day.
