Know Before You Go to the Polls

Save Time. Avoid Aggravation.  

Know these 5 things BEFORE going to the polls...

1. Are you a registered voter?

The deadline to register to vote in the Presidential election is Wednesday, October 19, 2016.  The Town Clerk's Office will be open on this date from 8AM - 8PM. You can check at the Secretary of State's web site: to confirm whether you are listed as a registered voter at your address.

2. Is your voter status "active" ?

Voters must return their signed street list census form annual to the Town Clerk's office to maintain an active voter status.  Inactive voters are still eligible to vote but will be required to complete additional forms and show an ID at the polls in order to vote.  To avoid having to complete additional paperwork at the polls, voters who appear as inactive can change their status to active by stopping by the Town Clerk's Office to sign a census form in person up until Thursday, October 20th.  Changes to the voting lists cannot be made after the deadline of Thursday, October 20th.

3. Where do I vote?

The Town of Halifax has one polling location, the Halifax Elementary School Gym, 464 Plymouth Street. All voters in Precincts 1 and 2 vote at this location. There is no voting at the Halifax Town Hall.

4. What is my voting Precinct?

Each polling location is divided into precincts and voters will appear on the voting list only in the precinct in which their street is part of.  Due to the crowds expected for this election, voters are strongly encouraged to already know which precinct they will be voting in before entering the polling location. You can check the Halifax Precinct Map for guidance.

5. What will I be voting on?

Voters are encouraged to educate themselves on the many races and questions that will appear on their ballot PRIOR to arriving at the polls. You can take a look at the sample ballot before going to the polls. Educated voters will reduce the amount of time necessary in the voting booths and reduce lines and crowding on election day.
