How to Become a Candidate for Elective Town Office
Any qualified potential Townwide candidate may get his or her name on the ballot by filing nomination papers (available from the Town Clerk's office) bearing signatures of registered voters in the town totaling at least 1 percent of the votes cast in Montague for Governor in the most recent election for that office, but not more than 50. Nomination papers must be filed with the Registrars of Voters at least 49 days before the date of the town election. Nominees should obtain more than the minimum number of signatures required to protect against duplicate and/or invalid signatures.
Potential Town Meeting Members only need to obtain 10 qualified signatures from registered voters from their home precinct.
Potential Gill-Montague Regional School Committee members need to get their nomination papers from the Superintendent’s Office at 35 Crocker Ave, Turners Falls. (413)-863-9324
