Early Voting is Underway in Bedford

Waiting to cast in-person ballots at Bedford Town Hall during the first session of in-person voting ahead of the November 3 election.


A Bedford virologist who cited Dr. Anthony Fauci as her “personal hero” was the first voter in line, waiting for the polls to open Saturday afternoon. She was joined by about a dozen others, and the group became a small crowd before the first vote was cast.

The Reed Room at Town Hall was ready and waiting, arranged to accommodate appropriate social distancing with plenty of sanitizer on hand.

Bedford’s AutoMARK Voter Assist Terminal, an optical scan ballot marker, is available for individuals unable to personally mark their ballot due to visual limitations, physical impairments, or language barriers.

Early in-person voting is available daily through Friday, October 30. Click this link for the full schedule of weekday and weekend hours.

Unregistered voters have another week (Saturday, October 24)  to get onto the voter rolls. The online or in-person registration deadline is October 24; mailed registration must be postmarked by October 24.

And there is still time to request an absentee ballot. All requests must be received by 5 pm on Wednesday, October 28. Returned ballots must be postmarked or returned in person by the close of the polls on Tuesday, November 3

Early in-person voting began at 2 pm on Saturday
