Nomination Papers Now Available for Annual Town Election

Feb 01, 2021 09:16AM ● By Bella Caggiano

Make a difference. That is the opportunity available for  Norwood residents who seek to represent their neighbors and run in the 2021 Annual Town Election, which will be held on Monday, April 5. While the voting booths are still tucked away for a few months, interested parties must commit in February to run. In order to compete for these municipal positions, candidates must pull nomination papers from the Town Clerk’s office in Town Hall and obtain at least 50 registered Norwood voters to sign the form in their support (the Town Clerk recommends obtaining additional signatures as some supporters may not be registered voters). 

New Town Meeting Members must obtain at least 10 signatures in their district. Current Town Meeting Members should have received a letter of intent mailed to their homes in January. To appear on the ballot, a Letter of Intent must be delivered to the Town Clerk’s office, in Town Hall by Tuesday, February 16, 2021..

Due to COVID-19 safety procedures, prospective candidates are recommended to call Norwood Town Hall (781-762-1240) for all inquiries regarding the election procedures. 

Completed nomination papers are due by 5:00 PM, Tuesday, February 16, 2021. 

There are plenty of positions to choose from that are up for the April vote.
