TOWN OF AMHERST
The Amherst Supervisors of the Checklist will be in session at the Town Clerk’s Office at the Amherst Town Hall on Friday, October 30, between 7:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. This will be the last time currently registered voters may change their party affiliation prior to the Presidential Primary, the date of which is still uncertain. New voters are welcome to register at the Town Hall up until 10 days prior to Election Day or at the polls on Election Day.
Please address any questions about voter registration and absentee ballots to the Town Clerk by calling 673-6041 Ext. 203.
