Lincoln residents interested in public service can become involved in town affairs either through the ballot box, at the annual Town Election, or through appointment, most frequently by the Board of Selectmen or the Town Moderator. Volunteers are always in high demand! Please refer to relevant web pages for further information.
Each spring, an Induction Ceremony for newly elected and appointed officials is conducted by the Town Clerk’s office in concert with the Town Administrator and the Moderator. It is, we hope, an informative and celebratory introduction of new officials to each other, key leaders, and their mutual obligations under state law.
Following administration of the oath of office, these newly minted, or recently renewed, public officials each signify their place in Lincoln’s long line of public service by entering his or her signature in the Town’s official Register of Oaths Signed.
