Town Meeting Warrant

An Important Message for all Massachusetts Town Residents 

The purest form of democratic governing is practiced in a Town Meeting. In use for over 300 years and still today, it has proven to be a valuable means for many Massachusetts taxpayers to voice their opinions and directly effect change in their communities. Here in this ancient American assembly, you can make your voice heard as you and your neighbors decide the course of the government closest to you. This website outlines the forms and procedures used in Massachusetts Town Meetings. As the Commonwealth’s information officer, I urge you to read it and make use of it as you engage in the debates and votes that give shape to your Town Government. 

William Francis Galvin Secretary of the Commonwealth
