Clarification on Absentee Ballots for Special Town Meeting

We have had a couple of questions on whether absentee ballots are permissible for the upcoming Special Town Meeting. Here is the official word from Town Administrator John Lebeaux:

Under Mass General Laws there is no provision for absentee voting at town meeting. Casting your vote at the November 18th Special Town Meeting requires you attend the town meeting.

Voters may vote via absentee ballot for the December 9th Debt Exclusion vote. Preferably, applications for absentee voting should be made to the Town Clerk after the Nov. 4 state election. Should there be need to apply prior to that date, please contact the Town Clerk directly at
