The Town Clerk is the recorder of official town business. The Clerk is responsible for the conduct of elections and is the executive member of the town’s registrar of voters, being responsible for the preparation, publication, and circulation of the town’s voter list. The Clerk also issues and collects fees for licenses such as marriage licenses, sporting licenses, (hunting, fishing, and trapping), and dog licenses.
The Clerk records all votes passed at Town Meetings held during his/her term of office. The Clerk administers the oaths of office to all town officers who apply to be sworn, and makes a record thereof and of the oaths of office taken before justices of the peace of which certificates are filed. Immediately after every annual election of town officers, the Clerk transmits to the state secretary a complete list of all town officers elected and qualified, and promptly reports to the secretary any changes in such officers. Within seven days after the qualification of a constable, the Clerk makes return of his/her name to the Clerk of Courts and to the sheriff of the county. The Clerk maintains an index of instruments entered with him/her that are required of by-law to be recorded, and records the date of reception, the names
of parties and book and page on which each instrument is recorded. The index is open to public inspection.
