Danvers is divided into eight Precincts consisting of 18 Town Meeting Members for a 3-year term.  Each year, 6 Members are up for re-election in May at the Annual Town Election.   

There are a total of 149 Town Meeting Members including the 5 Select Board Members

Those who are interested in running for a Town Meeting seat may obtain nomination papers at the Town Clerks’ Office and sign the nomination book on or after February 1st prior to the May Annual Town Election.

Your nomination sheet must contain a minimum of 10 registered voters who live within your precinct in order to have your name placed on the ballot.

At times, due to various reasons (resignation, move out of town, etc.), an unexpired seat may come up between election cycles.

Current Town Meeting Members or the Moderator may request a “caucus” be held prior to a Town or Special Town Meeting if there are vacant seats.  

In the event of a caucus, notification of caucus details will be made by the Town Clerk to the current members of Precincts that have vacancies.

A location and time will be arranged by the Town Clerk just prior to the Town or Special Town Meeting to allow the current Precinct Town Meeting Members that have the vacancy to caucus.

Any interested registered voter that lives in the Precinct with the vacancy can appear at the caucus, give a short presentation about themselves and why they feel they would be the best candidate to fill the vacancy until the next Annual Town Election.

After all candidates have had the opportunity to present to the Precinct Members, the current Precinct Members will vote by secret ballot to select the new member.  The newly elected member would complete the nomination acceptance document and could participate in any Town or Special Town Meeting held until the next election where they will (if they choose) run to maintain their seat.

Please contact Town Clerk Catherine Ellsworth with any questions you may have at

[email protected] or 978-777-0001 x 3046.
