Nomination Papers Now Available for Annual Town Election

By Michele Taranto
Interested in local politics? Have ideas for Norwood? Or maybe, looking to have a voice or simply give back to a town that offers its residents so much? Running for a Norwood office seat is just the opportunity! The 2022 Annual Town Election will take place on Monday, April 4, but now is the time to commit.
In order to compete for these municipal positions, candidates must pull and submit nomination papers from the Board of Registrars, 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).  Before nomination papers are circulated for signatures, all the information non the top of the nomination paper must be completed by the candidate. 
Completed nomination papers are due by 5 p.m., Monday, February 14, 2022.
Once nomination papers are certified by the Board of Registrars, they will automatically be filed with the Town Clerk. The candidate’s name will appear on the Town Election Ballot unless the candidate notifies the Town Clerk in writing, March 2, 2022, 5 p.m.
There are plenty of positions to choose from that are available for the April election.
