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:

Hi All - Just a reminder that the Town Clerks Office will be open to 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday February 16th, 2021 so Town Meeting Representative Papers can be dropped off for the April 6th Local Election.

Thank you - Stephanie

02/09/2021

Good Morning All -

The Town Manager has been receiving phone calls from Town Meeting Members and new candidates on how to get signatures during Covid - 19.

We met and came up with an idea - if you still need signatures for one night only, you can drop your papers off here at Town Hall on Wednesday February 10th in the Great Hall between 4:30 - 7:30. You can tell your neighbors, friends, relatives acquaintances to stop by and sign your papers.

If you are still interested in becoming a Town Meeting Representative you can stop by and pick up papers, bring them upstairs and get signatures.

Being a Town Meeting Member is a important position in the town. If elected, you vote on both Town and School budgets. Articles that are presented in the Town Warrant to move the town forward. You vote on all these items....your vote makes decisions for the town.

As always if you have any questions or concerns please call the Clerks Office at 781-341-1300 x 9103, 9215 or 9224.

**Please note that you will be responsible to pick up your papers and submit to the Clerk’s Office by February 16th at 5pm per State/Charter Requirements. If you don’t have enough signature’s please continue to get your minimum 15 requirement and return as stated.***

Sincerely, Stephanie

Good Evening All -

I want to let you all know that you should've received or will be receiving your yearly Town Census.

Please review the census, which is the blue and white paper carefully. Make any necessary updates to it, then sign, date and return it in the envelope provided. If there are no changes just sign and date it and return to us.

We once again have included the annual renewal form so families can register their dogs. You may return it with your census and we will process it as fast as we can and send your tag back to you.

If you returned your census already but forgot to send in the renewal form, please send it in separately and we'll process or you can download the renewal form from our website and just follow the same steps.

Please, Please, Please if you haven't or your thinking about being a Town Meeting Representative, there is still time to pull papers. All Town Meeting Representative papers for all precincts are due back to the Town Clerks Office by 5pm on February 16th, 2021.

As always, if you have any questions, please call the Clerks Office at 781-341-1300 x 9103, 9215 or 9224. We will return your call as soon as time allows.

Thank you all once again...Stephanie 🙂

Good Morning Everyone, just a friendly reminder to all my Town Meeting Representatives whos term has expired, please remember to call the Town Clerks Office to get your Town Meeting Rep papers. They are due back by February 16th, 2021 at 5p.m.

I know some of you are saying "how am I going to get signatures during Covid"" Here's some helpful hints:

Call some of your neighbors to ask them to sign your papers by putting them in your mailbox. Ask them to stop by when they're out to sign them.

Post a video on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram account(s) and let voters in your precincts know your running and their signatures are needed.

On Stoughton News, the creator Mark Snyder, stated candidates can announce that they're running for a specific seat. See if you can put something out there to get the word out that you're running.

Remember, becoming a Town Meeting Representative is a very important position to hold. You are making decisions on both town and school budgets, voting on articles that are not only submitted by our Select Board, but by citizens of the town. Town Meeting Reps, make decisions to not only move our town forward but also you make decisions for our children who are our future.

If anyone has any questions or wants to make an appointment to pull papers please call the Clerks Office at 781-341-1300 x 9103, 9215 or 9224.

Again, Town Meeting Representative Papers are due back on February 16th, 2021 at 5pm.

Let your voice be heard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Tuesday, Stephanie

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!
