The presidential election will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 3 and the polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Those voting on election day should be aware of the following requirements and suggestions to prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • All voters will be required to wear a face mask or covering.
  • Bring a black or blue ink permanent marker or felt tip pen if you do not wish to borrow one.
  • Bring a clipboard or book to use when marking your ballot if you do not wish to make contact with the voting booth.
  • Avoiding touching your face while at the polling location.
  • Practice social distancing and maintain at least six feet of physical distance from anyone not from your household.
  • Keep your ballot dry and free from hand sanitizers to ensure to avoid tabulator issues.

Masks, gloves and hand sanitizer will be available at all polling locations.

Voters in Precinct 3, 7, 10 and 15 are reminded that polling locations have changed to the following locations:

  • Precinct 3 voting will be held in the gym of the Coolidge Corner School, 345 Harvard Street.
  • Voters should use the Stedman Street entrance.
  • Precinct 7 and 10 voting will be held in Brookline High School’s Schluntz Gymnasium, 115 Greenough St. Precinct 15 voting will be held in the lower-level cafeteria of Baker School, 205 Beverly Road.
