This primary election will choose presidential candidates for each political party. The party winners of the primary election will then run in the general election on Nov. 6.

A note about primary elections: Only voters registered in a political party holding a primary, or “unenrolled,” are eligible to vote in a primary election. If one is registered in a political party (i.e. Republican, Democrat or Libertarian), one is entitled to vote in that party’s primary, only. If one is registered as “unenrolled” (independent), the voter may chose the primary ballot of any of the parties.

Contact the town clerk at 978-448-1100 or townclerk@townofgroton.org.
