Kevin Kalkut for state representative

I am supporting and endorsing Kevin Kalkut for State Representative in the November general election.

I have met with Kevin several times, and I find him bright, interested, engaging, knowledgeable, educated, and well aware of our municipal issues. He has most recently had responsible relevant executive level work experiences, after starting out his career as a chef. Importantly too, he has had municipal government experience on the Town of Norfolk Select Board. I have come to feel that Kevin truly cares about making our towns work better for our residents. I found Kevin approachable and good at listening. From our conversations, I am confident that he would represent Medfield’s town interests well in the Legislature. I hope you will join me in supporting Kevin Kalkut for State Representative.

The VOTES Act signed June 2022

  1. Beginning July 22, 2022, the voter registration deadline for all elections and town meetings will be 10 calendar days before the date of the meeting or election.
  2. Local election officials will still be required to hold in-person registration sessions on the last day to register to vote, which for any Tuesday election will now be a Saturday, but the registration session will end at 5 p.m. instead of 8 p.m.
  3. As in 2020, the Elections Division will be mailing Vote by Mail applications at least 45 days before every regular state primary, state election, and presidential primary. The applications will be sent to everyone registered to vote by the 60th day before the election who has not already applied for a ballot. The applications will be pre-addressed to the local election office and postage pre-paid. Unlike previous years, family members are now allowed to request an early Vote by Mail ballot on a voter’s behalf, as they currently can with absentee ballots. Similarly, family members are now permitted to return an early Vote by Mail ballot for the voter as well.
  4. Changes deadline to apply for vote by mail ballot from 4 days to 5 business days prior to the election.
  5. For most elections, all ballots will still have to be returned by close of polls on Election Day. Beginning with the 2022 State Election, ballots will be able to arrive up to 3 days after Election Day for biennial state elections only. This means that ballots mailed from inside the country can be counted if they are postmarked by Election Day and received by 5 p.m. on the Friday after Election Day. Again, this is only for biennial state elections, which are the November federal elections held in even-numbered years.
  6. Requires early voting in person for presidential primaries, state primaries and state elections.
  7. 150 Foot Rule – Beginning with early voting for the September 6th State Primary, the 150 foot rule prohibiting campaigning around polling places will be extended to early voting sites as well. This means that there shall be no campaigning for or against a candidate or question on the ballot for that election within 150 feet of the entrance to the early voting site during voting hours. Signature gathering of any kind will also be prohibited during the voting hours.
