The election will be held on Tuesday May 19, 2020 from 7am to 8pm in the auditorium of the Town Hall.
Due to the recent concerns surrounding Covid-19, the elections will be following CDC guidelines and the town’s emergency protocols to ensure your safety and the safety of the election workers. A mandatory face covering order has been issued by the Board of Health and all voters are asked to come prepared with a mask or face covering.
First, we ask if you are engaging in the “in-person” voting right, please come with patience.
Second, all voters will enter the front of the building for the polling location and not the rear of the building. The rear of the building will be used for the voters leaving the polling location.
If a line were to form, everyone is to use the 6 foot rule marked on the ground. And only 3 voters will be allowed in each precinct at one time.
If you don’t know what precinct you are in, we ask you call the Town Clerk’s Office ahead of time at 413-569-5504. In addition, we kindly ask that you bring your own pen, however, if you forget we will have one available. You will be asked to dispose of the pen in the bucket on your way out.
Lastly, if you wish to avoid the polls, an early ballot can be obtained by filling out the application available online at www.southwickma.org and received in the Town Clerk’s office no later than 4:30pm on Friday May 15th or an absentee ballot application returned by May 18th by noon. All ballots have to be returned to the Town Clerk either by regular mail or drop in the green mailbox outside town hall before the close of the polls on May 19th.
