Registration
The registration deadline for first-time voters is twenty (20) days prior to the election or the Annual Town Meeting in which they wish to participate. The deadline to register to vote in a Special Town Meeting is ten (10) days prior to the Special Town Meeting.

Registration can be made in person at the Town Clerk’s Office weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or by submitting a Mail in Voter Registration form available at the Lincoln Public Library or online at Massachusetts Secretary of State's Election Division. Mail-in registration forms must be post-marked by the twentieth day prior to the election.

Removal from the Voter List

Massachusetts law protects Voters' Rights by strictly limiting the circumstances under which an individual can be removed from the Voter List. This can result in a List which is bloated with the names of departed residents. If you are a Registered Voter of the Town of Lincoln and anticipate leaving or have already left town without informing us in writing, please do so here and now.
