Elections

The City Clerk provides operational and administrative support to the Board of Election Commissioners and is the City's primary election and voter registration official.

The mission of the Elections Office is threefold:

  1. To conduct state and municipal elections in accordance with the Massachusetts Election Laws & Regulations as well as Worcester's Home Rule Charter.
  2. To Register all voters and inform them of their polling location.
  3. To communicate annually with the residents of every building in the City and make a true list containing, as nearly as ascertainable, the name, date of birth, occupation, nationality and residence of every person three years of age or older.

The majority of this office's efforts is in the conduct of elections, beginning in January with the preparation of nomination papers, and continuing through the certification of signatures, filing, ballot design and bid, servicing of voting equipment and setting up of polling locations.

This office continues to seek avenues to increase voter education and participation in order to increase Worcester's total electorate. In addition, the Election Commission and support staff continually review all 50 polling locations to determine whether or not safer and more convenient locations may be implemented.
