The City of Melrose is seeking a Melrose resident who is registered in the Republican Party to fill a vacancy on the Melrose Board of Registrars of Voters.
Pursuant to the requirements of Mass General Laws, this vacancy must be filled by a registered Republican. The Board of Registrars of Voters membership consists of four members, one of whom is the City Clerk, acting as Clerk for the Board. As nearly as possible the Board shall represent the two leading political parties and in no case an appointment will be made to cause the Board to have more than two members, including the City Clerk, of the same political party ensuring equity and parity among the parties.
“As required by the City’s administrative code and state law, I am requesting that the Melrose Republican City Committee send to my attention a list containing the names of three enrolled members to be considered for this appointment,” said Mayor Paul Brodeur.
Established in accordance with the administrative code of Melrose, the Board of Registrars of Voters holds voter registration sessions, certifies signatures on nomination papers and petitions, holds hearings and decides disputes over signatures on nomination papers, prepares the annual list of persons 17 and older, and employs poll workers and ballot counters. The Board has all the other powers, duties, and responsibilities that are given to Boards of Registrars of Voters by Massachusetts General Law (see MGL c. 51, §§ 15 and 25) and is a regulatory multiple-member body of the City.
Applications may be made to the Melrose Republican Committee. Those interested in the position should send a letter of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
