All registered voters can now Vote Early by mail and all (“Active”) Registered Voters will be mailed an application to Early Vote by Mail for our Annual Town Election. While we all adhere to social distancing and safety precautions related to COVID-19, we strongly encourage all registered voters to take advantage of the opportunity of Early Voting by Mail. This is the easiest and safest way to vote while maintaining social distancing.

Please note that “Inactive” voters will need to complete additional paperwork before applying for or receiving an Early Voting ballot and will not be sent an application automatically.

If you do not receive an application, you can download one from the Town’s website or call our office. If you have already applied for an Early Voting or Absentee Ballot you would not have to do anything further and you can disregard the mailing. If you are unsure of your voting status, you can verify it with this link: https://www.sec.state.ma.us/ele/eleidx.htm. 

Because Town Hall is closed to the public, you can return your application by using the mailing address, fax number or email above, or by using the outside drop box at Town Hall.

A ballot will be mailed to you as soon as we received your signed application.  The deadline to apply to vote Early by Mail is noon on June 15th, but if you need an application and/or Early Voting ballot mailed to you, we ask you to request and/or complete an application as soon as possible to expedite the mailing process.

Sample ballots (the April 7, 2020 ballots will still be used on June 16, 2020) are on the Town website. https://www.milfordma.gov/town-clerk/pages/sample-ballots.  Please view them before voting.

Early voting in person is not available at this time.

Please know that any registered voter can still choose to vote in person on Election Day (June 16th) if they wish to do so.
