Winchester to update inactive voter list

Town Clerk MaryEllen Lannon is urging anyone who has received a yellow inactive voter postcard to help ensure the town’s voting lists are accurate by returning the postcard to the town clerk’s office. To remain listed as active voters, residents must return the census form annually or inform the town clerk that they wish to remain an active voter. Lannon thinks many inactive voters have moved out of Winchester and neglected to inform the town clerk. These voters then register to vote in their new state and may be identified as potential duplicate voters. For more information, visit
