December 7 Special Election Information


Wellesley will hold a Special Election on Tuesday, December 7, 2021 to consider a debt exclusion to build two new elementary schools. 

Construction of a new Hunnewell Elementary School and a new Hardy Elementary School was approved at Special Town Meeting in October. 

Voters will be asked to consider two separate questions on the ballot to exempt from Proposition two-and-a-half the amounts required to pay for the bonds needed to build both schools. Read the signed Special Election warrant here. Copies of the warrant are posted in the Town Clerk's office and at the Wellesley Police Department.

Residents can use the Town's tax impact estimator to estimate the maximum annual property tax impact of these building projects. Calculations are based on Fiscal Year 2021 assessed valuation of properties. 

Register for the December 7 Special Election

The last day to register to vote in the Special Election is Wednesday, November 17. 

Residents may register online at or at Wellesley Town Hall. The Town Clerk's office will be open extended hours on November 17, until 8:00 p.m. 

You must be a Wellesley resident and a U.S. citizen on the date of your registration. Voters must be 18 years old by election day. 

Special Legislation also permits Vote by Mail for the December election. Visit Vote by Mail ballots  for information.
