Citizens wishing to cast ballots in the Nov. 8 state election have a number of options – vote by mail, vote early in person, absentee ballot, or vote in person on Election Day.
Town Clerk Lori West announced early voting hours at town hall, 253 Atlantic Ave., for the Nov. 8 state election at last week’s select board meeting:
* Saturday, Oct. 22, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
* Monday, Oct. 24, Tuesday, Oct. 25, Wed., Oct. 26, and Thursday, Oct. 27, 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
* Saturday, Oct. 29, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
* Monday, Oct. 31, Tuesday, Nov. 1, Wednesday, Nov. 2, and Thursday, Nov. 3, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
As another option, all registered voters qualify to vote by mail in the Nov. 8 election. Hull voters who have not already chosen to receive a vote by mail ballot for the Nov. 8 state election have been sent a vote-by-mail application from the Secretary of State’s office.
Voters who would like a mail-in ballot should sign the pre-stamped postcard in person or drop it in the secure drop box at town hall. The town clerk’s office will process the applications and mail ballots to the voters.
The clerk’s office must receive a completed vote by mail application by 5 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1, in order to issue a ballot for the state election.

In-person voting will take place at Hull High School, 180 Main St., for all three precincts on Nov. 8.
A sample ballot will be posted soon on the town clerk’s web page, where absentee voting information is also available.
West had high praises for the department of public works.
“It’s not very often that I can publicly take the time to thank the DPW and Director of Public Works Chris Gardner for all the help they provide to the town clerk’s office,” West said. “They are such an integral part of our elections.”
