In an effort to reduce in-person interactions during this time of international and local pandemic, Town Clerk, Trudy Reid, is encouraging residents to vote by mail for the June 2, 2020 Annual Town Election. The state legislature is for the first time allowing Early Voting by Mail for the local election.
It can take up to three weeks to request by mail and receive a ballot under normal circumstances even if all transactions occur within North Andover. Due to COVID-19, the process is even slower. Therefore, it is important to request your ballot as soon as possible if you plan on voting by absentee ballot or early voting. The deadline to request a ballot by mail is Monday, June 1st noontime. Returned ballots must be received no later than 8 PM Tuesday, June 2nd – Election Day.
On the Spring Annual Town Election ballot this year will be four candidates for two Selectman seats, as well as three candidates for two School Committee seats, and singular candidates for the Housing Authority and Greater Lawrence Technical School Representative.

There are two ways to vote by mail. An absentee ballot (click here) or early voting (click here). Either one will be accepted but must include your original signature, and can be submitted by mailing it to the Town Clerk’s Office, 120 Main Street, North Andover, MA 01845, emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org or applications may also be deposited in the North Andover Business Mail Box located in front of Town Hall.
