Secret Ballot Referendum, Elections July 14

The Town of Durham will hold a secret ballot referendum on the Town’s budget on Tuesday, July 14, instead of holding a traditional Annual Town Meeting. This referendum will be held in conjunction with the State primaries and the RSU5 school budget vote.

The Durham Town Offices will be closed on July 14 for the elections/referendum. Durham Code Enforcement Officer Robert Forrest will be available by appointment only.

  • The mail-in voter registration card must be in the Durham Town Offices no later than 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 7
  • Voters will still be able to register to vote in person up to and including the day of election.
