Just a reminder Natick is split between two state Senate districts so there are two different ballots, however there are no party specific ballots for this election. There are links to sample ballots further down on this page.


Voting by mail is available to all Massachusetts voters for all elections in 2020.  You do not need an excuse/reason to vote by mail this year. However, you must request in writing a mail in ballot.  You may use the postcard that was mailed out from the MA Secretary of the Commonweatlth's office or an application which may be downloaded at The last day to submit a request for an absentee/early ballot application is Wednesday, October 28, 2020.  You may submit your request by mail, by dropping it in the mail slot to the right of front door of Town Hall or by email to  YOUR APPLICATION MUST HAVE A SIGNATURE. 

When you receive the ballot  fill it out following the directions provided. Insert the completed ballot in the inner envelope and SIGN the envelope.  If the ballot is not in the envelope or the enveloped is not signed we are not able to accept the ballot.  

RETURNING COMPLETED BALLOTS: The white envelope that comes with your absentee/early ballot is postage prepaid.  You may mail back your ballot or drop  it in the ballot box which is located to the left of the front door (down the ramp).  There is also a mail slot to the right of the front door of Town Hall. 

Vote by mail ballots may not be accepted at your polling location on Election Day.  They must be brought to Town Hall.

The Secretary of the Commonwealth's Office has a tool which allows you to track your ballot. You can check to see when your ballot was mailed out and when it is received in the Town Clerk's office.  Please note that ballots are not recorded as "received" until they are scanned into the system. All ballots received will be scanned in prior to Election Day, but the current priority is to make sure that all ballots get mailed out in a timely manner. Here is the link to track your ballot:  This site should indicate when your ballot is mailed (most ballots have been mailed out) and a date that it was received in the Town Clerk's office.  There is a lag time between when it is dropped off and when it is processed (received) in the office.

The Secretary of the Commonwealth's website has a great deal of information regarding early and absentee voting. Please visit their site at
