Early Voting


Town of Milton voters now have the option to vote early by mail in all elections, with no excuse required. 

If you wish to vote by mail, you will first need to submit an application for your ballot. You may submit your Vote by Mail application by mail, email, or fax. Further, any written request with your signature is an acceptable application. You can simply write a signed letter to apply for your ballot.

Electronic signatures, scanned applications, and photos of applications are acceptable.

Typed signatures on applications cannot be accepted unless you are a voter who requires accommodations due to physical disability. If you are unable to sign your application or mark your ballot by hand due to a disability, please contact the Office of the Town Clerk.

The deadline to request a vote by mail ballot is 5 pm on the fifth business day before all presidential primaries, state primaries, and state elections. Please file your request early to allow time for your ballot to be mailed to you and for you to return your voted ballot so it reaches Town Hall by the close of polls to be counted.

 Please provide a phone number and/or email address in case a question arises as we prepare your ballot. When the voter receives the vote-by-mail ballot in the mail, the voter should mark the ballot, complete and sign the inner affidavit envelope and, as soon as possible, return the voted ballot (sealed inside the inner envelope) to the Office of the Town Clerk. Voted mail-in ballots may not be brought directly to precinct polling places. Voted ballots may be returned by mail or dropped off by the voter or a family member at the Town Clerk's Office before the polls close. Ballots received after the polls close cannot be counted.

You may also request a vote by mail ballot by submitting a letter to the Town Clerk. Be certain to sign your letter and include the following information:

  • current date
  • voter name
  • voter address (as registered)
  • mailing address where we should send the ballot
  • signature

Send your written request (application form or letter) by any ONE of the following methods:

  • By email send a pdf or clear photo of the signed form or letter)
  • By fax to 617-696-6995
