I want to give a shout out of Thank You's to the following:

Shelly Governman: She brought us some lovely flowers as a thank you for helping her fix a problem she was having and we were able to get the correction done for her.

Carter DePina: He was having no luck getting a corrected birth certificate and we were able to be detectives and get to the bottom of the 2004 error. He and his mom gave us many high-fives.

Jessica Bosworth: Who told us we were so kind and helpful to her and she would always come here if she needed help.

My staff, I have here working with me is the BEST!! They are always so helpful and go above and beyond for all. I can't thank them enough.

Good Morning All - I want to thank all who came out and voted on Tuesday. As I always say "It doesn't matter who you vote for as long as you vote".

I want to give some special shout outs to some people who worked for me on the day of the election.

First of all to my poll workers. These amazing people work for me each election and are so dedicated to the process. I thank you for giving up a full day to help in the civic duty process.

Secondly I want to thank the following Town Clerks who assisted in this election:

Cheryl Sass, Town Clerk from Randolph, Nancy Danello, Acting Town Clerk from Franklin, Marilee Kenney Hunt, Town Clerk from Bridgewater, Mark Hogan, Town Clerk, Town of Sharon, Jayne Davolio, Town Clerk from Milbury and Dawne Warren, Assistant Town Clerk from Andover. I cannot thank you enough for helping out on Tuesday.

Third, a major shout out to Officer Bill Farwell. Officer Farwell stayed and monitored the tallying process until complete. We appreciate Officer Farwell going above and beyond for us here in the Clerks Office.

Another big shout out to all of the Policemen/women who worked the polls on Tuesday. Having SPD at the polling locations allow voters to feel safe casting their votes.

I also want to thank Carmel Msw my "Public Election Guru". Her kindness to get people to run for open seats is amazing. The information that she puts out for members of the public to sign up not only make it easier for interested parties to sign up but by her doing this, it helps us in the Clerks Office add the interested parties to our tally sheets making for a much smoother process. We appreciate it!!

DPW - thank you for putting up the Vote Signs and letting us use the reader board. - You're the best!

Last but certainly not least, my Senior Clerk (my right arm) Kellie Johnson. Kellie has been training to run elections and this was hers to do. She did an amazing job. She was calm, cool, professional and most of all she did an amazing job!! Her attention to detail was incredible. Thank you Kellie for all that you did for this election and all you do for the office. I appreciate it very much.

The results for the election have been posted on the Town Clerks webpage and here's the link for easy access:

When will we get the info on precinct redistricting and when town meeting reps can pull papers? I’m hearing already that some people are changing precincts but I haven’t seen anything or been notified. Thank you.
To the poll workers and election officials throughout the country to assure all votes are counted: "Our nation owes you a debt of gratitude," Harris said. "You have protected the integrity of our democracy." Great job team!
Kudos to the Town Clerk’s office, it was a pleasure to work with you and the others in the big efforts this week. Thanks for letting me be a part of it!
I'm new to this page, so forgive me if this has already been asked -- For voting in-person tomorrow, how are lines handled at the polls? Do you line up inside the building, outside the building, take a number and wait in your car? I had heard it will be cold tomorrow and want to be prepared if we might be outside for awhile. Thanks!
Has anyone checked their ballot on the Internet to find out if it has been accepted by the town?. I dropped ours off on Tuesday, October 13 and it still says that it has not been returned. Just wondering if they were waiting until after all the ballots have been mailed out before they started checking them. Thank you
Hello all, If anyone was in or around Washington street in Stoughton center on Sunday August 30 at about 3-3:30pm and witnessed the accident between a white pick-up truck and a grey Camry, please contact the Stoughton police. The truck that hit me took off and apparently, the traffic cameras doesn't capture/video vehicles. If you are the guy that hit me and ran off, please do the right thing and turn yourself in to the police.
Hi - I dropped off my mail-in ballot at the town hall today around 3pm and that ballot box was pretty full! It's so awesome that we have this option but I'm wondering, is the box emptied periodically or is there a back-up box for the overflow? I'm sure I'm not the only procrastinator and I can only imagine how many people will be rushing to town hall tomorrow!
Could you please post a digital copy of the warrant that’s been OCR’d so that the characters are live? The school Dept knows how to do this if anyone needs help. Thank you!
Will you be posting the election results tonight? Without SMAC I’m lost and can’t wait for tomorrow 😀
Hello, Quick question. Will the election results be posted to this page this evening since I don’t believe SMAC is reporting live? Thank you!
Good morning, how late are the polling locations open today? Thanks!
