Election FAQs

GENERAL ELECTION FAQS

What is the next election?

The 2022 Sudbury Annual Town Election. 

When is the election?

Monday, March 28, 2022. Polls are open from 7am to 8pm.

How do we get election results?

The Town Clerk will post the "unofficial" election results to the town website sometime after the polls close at 8 p.m.: https://sudbury.ma.us/election/313/

Note: It is likely that the results will post quite late this year, as write-ins must be counted by hand rather than machine. The L-S  School Committee race will be determined not just by the Sudbury totals, but by the Lincoln totals as well. If there should be a close race with a need for a recount, results may take even longer to post.

How & Where To Vote

NOTE!

Every 10 years after the Federal census, State law requires that every Muncipality redraw their maps based on the new population numbers.  Beginning with the March 28th, 2022 Town Election, Sudbury will have a new precinct map.  The polling places for future elections will be as follows:

 

Precincts 1, 2, 3 and 5
Fairbank Community Center
40 Fairbank Road
Sudbury, MA 01776

 

Precincts 4 and 6
Town Hall
322 Concord Road
Sudbury, MA 01776

If your voting district has changed, you will be notified by mail prior to the Annual Town Election (in the annual census). If you have any questions, please contact the Town Clerk’s Office. Email: clerk@sudbury.ma.us; Phone: (978) 639 - 3351
