If you will be 18 on or before the next election, you are a U.S. citizen and you live in Westford, you are eligible to register to vote in Westford. Voter registration forms are available at the Town Clerk’s Office, J.V. Fletcher Library and online.  You may register to vote in person at any city or town clerk’s office, by mail or at the Registry of Motor Vehicles (online transactions at the Registry do not enable you to register to vote).  Currently, the voter registration deadline is 20 days before an election (10 days before a special town meeting).


Seventeen-year-olds, beware! You may register while you are still 17 if you will be 18 on or before election day, but you must register at least 20 days before the election.


If you become a US citizen after the voter registration deadline and you register to vote before 4:00pm on the day before the election, you are specially qualified to vote in that election.
