COHASSET — Town Manager Christopher Senior and Town Clerk Carol St. Pierre wish to provide residents with information regarding how to vote early in the 2020 general election.
The Town has released a video PSA featuring all of the information residents need to know in order to vote early, whether it is in person or through mail.
Early in-person voting begins on Oct. 17 and runs through Oct. 30. Daily voting is available at the Cohasset Town Hall auditorium, located at 41 Highland Ave., and times vary by day.
Residents are reminded to wear their face mask if coming to Town Hall to vote.
Once residents arrive to the auditorium, they will follow these steps to vote:
- Receive and sign a ballot envelope
- Fill out a ballot
- Hand the ballot to an election employee, who will seal the ballot envelope
- Drop the sealed ballot envelope into ballot box to cast vote
Residents are urged to then take a selfie on the “My Vote Counts” selfie wall on their way out of the auditorium.
Town Hall employees will take care of sanitizing and cleaning all voting supplies and touched surfaces regularly for the safety of town employees and voters.
Any resident who does not wish to vote in person can request a mail-in ballot until Oct. 28.
Residents can drop their ballot off at the Town’s official ballot box, located outside Town Hall, or mail the ballot through the United States Postal Service.

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 3. Polls will be open in Cohasset from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Town Hall Auditorium.
