When are we voting? Do I have to vote in person?

The override requires two separate votes this spring.

The first vote is at Annual Town Meeting on Monday, April 24, 2023 at 7pm at Hingham High School.  This is an in-person event only.  The override vote will be part of Warrant Article 6 and it requires a majority vote to pass.  If you’re new to Town Meeting, the State has a helpful Citizen’s Guide to Town Meetings

The second vote is at the Town Election on Saturday, April 29, 2023.  The override question will be Question 1 (there is only one ballot question this spring) and it requires a majority vote to pass.  For the Town Election, you can vote in person on Election Day or you can vote by mail ahead of time.  

  • In-person voting will take place on Saturday, April 29 from 8am-8pm. Precinct and voting location information is available here
  • Vote by Mail applications are available here. The deadline to submit Vote by Mail applications is Monday, April 24, but the Town Clerk’s office recommends submitting in advance.

You must be a registered voter in Hingham to participate in Town Meeting and the Town Election this spring.  The last day to register to vote for these events is Friday, April 14, 2023.
