VOTING IN-PERSON – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW AND BRING:

Please DO NOT go to the POLLS if you have COVID-19, are feeling sick, or waiting for COVID-19 test results. Please call the City Clerk’s Office at 508-532-5520 for voting options from home.

 •  Wear a Face Covering - 
Per Governor Baker’s Order and the City of Framingham’s Emergency Order, face coverings will be required to enter or use any City facilities.
 •  Voters can bring their own pen
– Blue or Black ink – Sharpie or Paper Mate Flair recommended (machines will not read red ink/highlighters; pencil/crayons cause issues with tabulator breakdowns).
• Bring an ID –  You may be asked to show identification when you check-in at your polling place for any of the following reasons:

  • You are voting for the first time in Massachusetts in a federal election;
  • You are an inactive voter;
  • You are casting a provisional or challenged ballot;
  • The poll worker has a reasonable suspicion that leads them to request identification.

    Acceptable identification must include your name and the address at which you are registered to vote. Examples of acceptable identification include: a driver's license, state-issued ID card, recent utility bill, rent receipt, lease, a copy of a voter registration affidavit, or any other printed identification which contains the voter's name and address. View more information about identification requirements here
  • Don’t touch your face
  • Maintain Social Distancing – keep a distance of at least 6’ from others
  • Keep your ballot dry and free from hand sanitizers - Do not use hand sanitizer while handling your ballot and be sure your voting booth is dry as it will cause issues for the ballot tabulator.

    Our commitment to keeping voters safe:
    • Polling locations will be thoroughly cleaned before and after each election/vote early in-person day
    • Voting Booths will be sanitized after each voter  
    • Social Distancing measures will be in place to remind voters to keep their space
    • Unused/sanitized pens will be provided to those who need one
    • Hand sanitizing stations will be available at each polling location
    • Plexiglass dividers will be placed on the check-in table, the warden table, and the greeter table
    • Signs and stanchions will be in place to direct voters in and out of the polling location safely
