Hawley Election Update By Town Clerk Pam Shrimpton

Our Annual Town Election will be held on Monday, June 1 at 8 Pudding Hollow Road in Hawley from 11:45 am to 7:00 pm.

We are encouraging voting by absentee ballot. The State has informed us that the COVID-19 pandemic is enough reason for any resident to request an absentee ballot. We do still by law need to hold an election in person, and that will be at the above time and place. We may hold the election outside, and will maintain social distancing, require masks, and have fewer workers than usual.

Please see:


If we need to hold the election inside due to inclement weather, precautions will be in place, including limiting the number of people in the building at one time and requesting that voters wear masks.

Your Town Clerk,
Pamela Shrimpton
