Early Voting 2018

Malden’s Early Voting Schedule

This fall, the City of Malden will once again offer early voting.  Beginning October 22nd, all registered Malden voters will have the option of casting their ballots early, either at an early voting center or by mail. Alternatively, voters may still go to their polling places on Election Day, if they wish to vote in the usual manner. Unlike absentee voting, early voting is available to every registered voter. Voters do not need an excuse or reason to vote early.

The early voting period begins October 22nd and continues through November 2nd.  In Malden, early voting will be available as follows:

As an alternative to voting in person at an early voting location, voters may choose to vote early by mail by mailing an early voting application to the City Clerk’s Office at 110 Pleasant Street First Floor, Malden, MA 02148.  Applications for early voting by mail may be obtained at the City Clerk’s Office or downloaded from https://www.sec.state.ma.us/ele/elepdf/2018-Early-Ballot-Application.pdf.  Ballots will be mailed at the beginning of the early voting period, starting on October 22nd.  

Voters who will be away on Election Day, have a physical disability or whose religious beliefs prevent them from going to the polls may still submit an application for an absentee ballot. Absentee ballots are available now.

In order to vote in the November 6 State Election, residents must be registered by Wednesday, October 17, 2018. The City Clerk’s Office will be holding extended hours until 8 PM on that day for those who wish to register by this deadline. Residents may also register online at https://www.sec.state.ma.us/ovr/.
