If you’ve received your ballot by mail for the Nov. 3 election, Natick is ready for you to drop it off in its shiny new ballot box to the left of the front door at Town Hall.
Natick, like other communities, found that with so much early voting its previous ballot collection lockbox would easily get filled throughout the day.
The new $3,000 box, paid for using grant money, holds upwards of 1,000 ballots. Town Clerk Diane Packer and colleagues check it throughout the day to process ballots and keep up.
“It is working out great!!” Packer says.
Natick has laid out details on how to register (by Oct. 24) and how to vote, whether you want to do it by mail, early in-person at Morse Institute Library, or on Nov. 3.
