Registered voters may vote by absentee ballot if they will be absent from their city or town on Election Day, or have a disability that prevents them from going to the polls, or have a religious belief preventing the same.
The last day and hour to apply for an absentee ballot is 12:00 PM on Monday, November 5th. Absentee ballots are available at the Town Clerk’s Office. To be counted, absentee ballots must be received in the Town Clerk’s Office on Election Day by the close of polls at 8:00 PM.
We are pleased to announce that all registered voters will be able to vote before Election Day. Early Voting will begin on October 22nd and continue through November 2nd, 2018.
Unlike absentee, Early Voting is available to every registered voter. Registered voters do not need a reason to participate in Early Voting.
Early Voting can be done in person or by mail. Early Voting sessions for in-person voting will be held at the Town Office Building, 36 Bartlet Street, Andover on the following dates and times:
Monday, October 22, 2018 from 8:30AM-4:30PM

Please note that once a voter has cast an Early Voting ballot, the voter may no longer vote at the polls on Election Day. Therefore, the first choice all voters will make is which day to vote. Early voting makes exercising the most fundamental right of citizens more convenient.
