Mattapoisett special election schedule

Jun 1, 2021

MATTAPOISETT — Friday is the last day to request nomination papers for the Mattapoisett Special Town Election. 

Last month, the Select Board approved a July 27 election to fill the Select Board position left by the death of John DeCosta in April. 

DeCosta’s term would have ended on Town Election day in 2023. The winner of the July 27 election will serve the rest of that term.

Nomination papers  must be filed with the Board of Registrars by June 8. Then, then, candidates must return their nomination papers to the town clerk’s office by 5 p.m. on June 27.

The last day to object or withdraw from the election is June 24, and the final day to register to vote for the election is July 7.
