HINGHAM — The Hingham Town Clerk’s Office would like to inform registered voters that voting precincts have been updated effective Dec. 31, 2021.
Pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws chapter 54, section 6, the Town of Hingham has changed some voting precincts to reflect population changes as calculated by the 2020 federal census.
Due to an increase in population, the Town has added a seventh precinct. This addition prompted a redistribution of streets among the now seven precincts.
To see if your precinct has changed, click here. Once on the page, navigate to the “Layers” tab on the left and scroll down to the “Voting Precincts Effective 12/31/2021” check-box option.
Included in Precinct 7 is the Linden Ponds Community, which will have its own polling location known as Precinct 7A.
Precincts are assigned to the following polling locations:
- Precincts 1-4: Hingham High School, 17 Union St.
- Precincts 5-7: Hingham Middle School, 1103 Main St.
- Precinct 7A: Willard Square at Linden Ponds, 201 Linden Ponds Way
Voters whose polling location has changed and those assigned to new Precincts 7 or 7A will receive written notification of the change via mail. Voters whose precincts have changed but remain at the same polling location will NOT receive written notification.
Community members are also reminded of the upcoming Annual Town Election on Saturday, May 14. Anyone who registers to vote by Wednesday, May 4 will be eligible to vote in the Annual Town Election.
Additionally, residents who have not already done so are encouraged to sign up for the Town’s News Flashes to receive timely election updates and other important notifications from the Town. To sign up, please click here.
