If you wish to run for any of the above positions, I can mail or email you the caucus request form. If you would like to take out nomination papers, please make an appointment to come to my office. Explanations of nomination papers and the caucus request form are below. Most people are unaware that nomination papers are available and they only run at the caucus. You can do BOTH!
If you choose to run at the Caucus: Notify me of your interest and I will get you the Caucus Request Form. You will fill it out and return it to me and then your name will appear on the caucus ballot for April 13, 2021. This form must be filled out by April 6 at 5:00 pm.
If you choose to run by Nomination Papers: To run for office on a nomination paper, you must get at least 20 signatures from registered voters in the Town of Otis. These signatures must be wet signatures and not digital. If the required 20 signatures are obtained and certified, then your name will appear on the Annual Town Election ballot on May 25, 2021. You must pick up the nomination paper in my office, get the required number of signatures, and I must have the nomination paper back in my office by April 6, at 5:00 pm.
If you have any questions, please call my office at 413-269-0100 ext 5. Office hours are currently by appointment so please call or email to pick up the forms.
