How do I become a Town Meeting Member?
At the beginning of March each year nomination papers are available from the Town Clerk's Office. You need to collect 10 signatures from registered voters in your precinct. Nomination papers need to be returned by the end of March and certified by the Registrars for your name to be placed on the ballot at the Annual Election held the third Tuesday in May. Check with the Town Clerk's Office or watch the Enterprise for exact dates. For more information please call 508-495-7360.
