Voter Registration

Registering to Vote

In order to register to vote in Rutland you must be

  • A U.S. Citizen
  • A resident of Rutland
  • At least 18 years of age on or before the next election

Where to Register

You may register in person at the Town Clerk's Office during regular business hours, through the Registry of Motor Vehicles, through various other State Agencies, or by completing a mail-in registration affidavit and returning it to our office. The online Voter Registration option has been available as of July 2015. Please see the link.

To request a mail-in registration card, contact the Town Clerk's Office at 508-886-4100, ext. 3010

A valid Massachusetts Drivers License number or the last four digits of your Social Security Number must be provided on the voter registration affidavit.

You must choose either a party enrollment or designation or you may choose "No Party (U/unenrolled)".

After the affidavit has been processed and verified by the State Voter Information System (VRIS) as complete, an acknowledgment letter will be generated and sent to you to confirm your registration and inform you of your polling location.

Registration Deadline

New voter registrations must be received ten days prior to all primaries, elections, and town meetings.

Change of Address

Please notify the Town Clerk's office if your address changes within the Town of Rutland. If you move to another town or city in Massachusetts, you must re-register to vote in that community.
