Frequently Asked Questions

I have recently been married. What do I have to do in order to change my maiden name to my married name in the Town Records?

You will need to fill out and record with the Town Clerk a CHANGE OF NAME form. This leaves a trail in the land records of your former and current name for research reference. After the Town Clerk records this document, a copy of this is given to other Town departments so your name can be changed in all records.

If you would like to have your married name on the voter checklist, all you need to do is call the Town Clerk and ask to have it changed.
