The Legislature has reached an agreement on extending the early voting provisions for municipal elections that had previously expired. This includes allowing any voter to vote early by mail with a local option for early voting in person and applies to both regular and special municipal elections including preliminary elections in addition to any special state primaries and elections held before December 15, 2021.
You must apply every year and when you apply, it can be for the whole year.
Absentee Ballots are available in the City Clerk's Office up until 12:00 P.M. the day before an election.
If you are able to come into the office to complete your application you may print out the application, mail it to the City Clerk's Office, 95 Pleasant Street, Room 121, Gardner, MA 01440. Once we receive your application, we will mail you a ballot. Please allow yourself enough time so we can mail your ballot and receive it back from you on Election Day.
