Voter Registration / Voting / Candidate Information

Upcoming Elections / Deadlines 

  • Running for Office: Any Registered voter that wishes to run for office a candidate for an open seat, may contact the office for more information.  The deadline to file to run for office is Tuesday, June 8, 2021, at 7 pm.
  •  Statewide Primary Election date: Tuesday, June 8, 2021.
  • General Election date: Tuesday, November 2, 2021.
  • Redistricting is a legally required process that occurs every 10 years in which districts for the U.S. House and state legislatures are redrawn. Once the U.S. Census Bureau releases new population figures for all 50 states (in every year ending in “1”), seats in the U.S. House are handed out accordingly. In 2021, new districts for congressional seats and state legislative seats, local government seats must be drawn to create districts that are equal (or as close to possible) in population.  These new districts will be approved and implemented for the November 2021 Election.  All voters across the commonwealth may see some district changes as a result of this process.
