"In order to be eligible to vote by absentee ballot in Massachusetts, a voter must be prevented from voting at their polling place on Election Day, due to:
- Absence from the voter's city or town on Election Day; or
- Physical disability; or
- Religious belief." (from the Secretary of the Commonwealth's page https://www.sec.state.ma.us/ele/eleabsentee/absidx.htm)
For those who travel out of Franklin on election day for work (i.e. train to Boston, car to RI or NH), you can vote now or anytime before noon Nov 4 via absentee ballot.
You can visit the Town Clerk's office to vote (similar to the early election voting trialed in 2016) or use the form to mail the application in to receive your ballot via mail and in turn mail it back.
