Town Meeting and Town Election News

Hingham Town Meeting

Update May 26 - Please see the most recent Update for Town Meeting confirming the date of Town Meeting as Saturday, June 20th at 2:00 PM.  

Update April 1: At the Board of Selectmen meeting on Tuesday, March 31st it was approved to move the dates of Town Meeting to begin on Monday, June 22 and Town Election to Saturday, June 27 as proposed below.

As the state of emergency announced by Governor Baker remains in effect, it is clear that we will not be able to begin Town Meeting on Monday, April 27, or to hold the Town Election on Saturday, May 2.

Consequently, we are looking at Monday, June 22, 2020, as the most likely date to begin Hingham’s 2020 Annual Town Meeting, and Saturday, June 27, 2020, as the most likely date for the Town Election.  The Selectmen, who have the authority to undertake this action, are scheduled to take this matter up at their meeting next Tuesday, March 31, 2020 at 7:00 PM. (Dial in information for this meeting is included on the Board of Selectmen’s posted agenda.)  We are making this announcement now to give citizens as much warning as possible with respect to these important municipal matters.  With respect to the Town Election (as opposed to the Town Meeting), voting options will include both absentee ballots and early voting, both by mail.  We will continue to provide timely updates as soon as we are able.

Karen Johnson, Chair, Board of Selectmen
Michael Puzo, Town Moderator
Eileen McCracken,  Town Clerk
Thomas Mayo, Town Administrator
