Office hours in North Adams are Monday through Thursday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Fridays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
If you cannot physically come in then you can send a request to have a ballot mailed to you. Keep in mind that they must be mailed to you, so allow ample time for this. The Williamstown clerk's office says any written request for an absentee ballot must be made by Friday, Aug. 31, at 5 p.m.
Ballots must be returned to the clerks' offices before the close of the polls.
