Generally, it requires little effort to become a candidate for election in Massachusetts, that is, local elections are non partisan and the number of signatures required to appear on the ballot are minimal, relative to the voting population. ( Town Clerk's office has all the specifics)
Time of Election:
The Annual Town Election for town officials and other matters to be determined by ballot takes place on the first Saturday following the first Monday of April. Polling hours are published prior to the election. State and Federal Elections are held on the first Tuesday in November in even numbered years. State law requires that all polling places be open for at least 10 hours and close by 8:00 p.m.
Within the Town of East Bridgewater there are four precincts, all of which meet at the East Bridgewater Junior/Senior High School located at 143 Plymouth Street.
This is a simple procedure, which is done at the Town Clerk's Office, under the direction of the Registrars of Voters.
May be obtained from the Town Clerk.
A list of those who hold offices is in the Annual Town Report.
