April is Town Meeting Month!

Annual Town Meeting is Wednesday, April 24th at 7 PM, Hingham High School.  Please note the date change due to the Passover holiday observance.  Hingham’s form of government works best when everyone participates.   Hingham’s Open Town Meeting form of government relies on participation from its registered voters to function. Town Meeting is open to all registered voters in town.

 

The proposed warrant articles have been posted on the Town Meeting website here.  

 

 The last day to register to vote for Town Meeting and the Town Election is Friday, April 12th.

 

If you are not a registered voter and would like to attend Town Meeting as a guest, please contact the Town Clerk in advance to be added to the Guest List.  Guests will be checked in at the main entrance to HHS and escorted to the guest seating section of the meeting.

 

Check-in for Town Meeting will start at 5:30 p.m. ahead of the 7 p.m. meeting start time. The Town Clerk will operate two registration tables, one at the High School main entrance and another at the back right entrance. Parking is available at two High School lots – the front lot and the far lot down Union Street beyond the ball fields. Overflow parking will be available at South Shore Baptist Church at 578 Main Street after the Union Street far lot is full.


Message signs will provide additional information on the day of Town Meeting. Shuttle buses will be running to and from the Baptist Church overflow site from 6 p.m. until 30 minutes after Town Meeting ends.

 Tips:

  • Arrive early

  • Bring your warrant booklet (should arrive in mailboxes the week of April 8th)

  • Large print warrant booklets are available

  • Bring water and snacks

  • Get on HHS wifi (password will be available at check-in)

Accessibility is a priority. Handicapped parking is available in the High School front and back parking lots. The Hingham Center for Active Living is providing transportation to mobility impaired residents. A limited number of large print warrant books will be available on request at registration desks. The Town will provide live closed captioning in the gymnasium and auditorium at this meeting. Accessible seating will be spread out across the gymnasium and auditorium. Finally, accessible restrooms are available in the High School.   Please share your accessibility questions with the Commission on Disability, by email, at COD@hingham-ma.gov.
