Public notice: Preprocessing of absentee ballots for the General Election

Due to unusually large volume, Absentee Ballots for the Presidential Election — to be held November 3, 2020 at the Mason Elementary School from 8 am to 7 pm — will be preprocessed on Thursday, October 29, at 4:30 pm at the Town Hall.

Preprocessing allows the Moderator to open the outer envelope only of the returned Absentee Ballot and make a notation on the checklist that the ballot has been returned in order to expedite processing on election day. The affidavit envelopes, which must be properly signed, with the ballots inside will not be opened and properly marked on the checklist until election day.
