Voter Registration

You can become a registered voter in the Town of Provincetown in a number of ways:

  • Come in to the Town Clerk’s Office and complete a Voter Registration Application;
  • Contact the Town Clerk’s Office and request that we mail you a Voter Registration Application, which you can then complete and mail back or drop off in the Town Clerk’s Office;
  • Register to Vote Online: To submit an online application, you must have a valid driver’s license, learner’s permit, or non-driver ID issued by the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV). You must also have a signature on file with the RMV. If you don not have an RMVID, you can still use the online system to create an application. PRINT and sign the completed form, and then mail it to the Town Clerk’s Office.
  • Request a Voter Registration Form through the Elections Division in the Secretary of State’s Office (PDF).
  • Register at the Registry of Motor Vehicles. Keep your motor voter receipt until you receive confirmation from the Town Clerk. If you do not receive any confirmation, please contact the town Clerk’s Office to verify your voting status.

Voting by Mail

Because the state legislature did not pass an extension to the temporary state laws that allowed no-excuse voting by mail in 2020 and 2021, absentee ballots are currently the only option to vote by mail

To apply to vote absentee by mail, complete the Absentee Ballot Application and submit it to the Provincetown Town Clerk's Office. 

Make sure to apply as early as possible. The U.S. Postal Service recommends allowing up to 7 days for ballot delivery in each direction, so it is best to apply at least 2 weeks before Election Day, or earlier if your ballot is being mailed out of town.

Absentee Ballot Eligibility

To qualify for an absentee ballot, you must:

  • Be away from your city/town on Election Day; or
  • Have a disability that keeps you from voting at your polling place; or
  • Have a religious belief that prevents you from voting at your polling place on Election Day

Applying for a Ballot

Absentee ballots must be requested in writing at least 4 business days before Election Day. Applications are available for download above, but any written request is acceptable if it has your signature on it. For absentee ballots, a member of your family may also make the request on your behalf.

Applications can be submitted by mail, email, or fax. If you are emailing your application, you may either scan or take a photo of your signed application and email it to the Office of the Town Clerk. Typed signatures are not acceptable.

If you are not able to print the application, you may request that one be mailed to you or you may write a letter to your requesting your ballot. Make sure to include your name, your address, the place you would like the ballot mailed, and your signature. If you are requesting a primary ballot and you are unenrolled (independent), be sure to indicate which party's ballot you want to have mailed to you.

If you need an application mailed to you, you may contact the Provincetown Office of the Town Clerk at 508-487-7013 or by email at ecatanese@provincetown-ma.gov.   Remember to request the application with plenty of time to mail it back before the deadline to apply for your ballot.

If voting absentee by mail, you may return your completed absentee ballot by mail or you or a family member may hand-deliver it to the Town Clerk’s Office. If mailing your ballot, please make sure to include the proper postage. To be counted, ballots must be returned to the Office of the Town Clerk by the close of polls on Election Day.  They can be returned by mail or in person.  The secure ballot drop box is located at the lower Ryder Street entrance to Town Hall.
