Each year, staggered terms of most elected Town Offices expire, and are open to nominations. Any registered voter in Groton is eligible to run for elected town office. To do so, one must request nomination papers to begin the process. Once you have requested and received nomination papers from the Town Clerk’s Office, the nomination process consists of collecting a requisite number of signatures of registered Groton voters to have your name placed on the ballot for a particular office and term.
Nomination papers for the 2023 Town Election will be available beginning on Wednesday, February 1, 2023. The last day to request nomination papers is Friday, March 31, 2023. All nomination papers must be returned by Tuesday, April 4, 2023, or sooner. 50 signatures must be collected. We always suggest obtaining a few extra in case signatures cannot be certified.
