Southborough residents will make their choice today in two hotly contested races. What started off as a low-key race, didn’t stay that way as incumbent Bill Boland and challenger Leo Bartolini vie for a seat on the Board of Selectmen. The race has been the focus of much discussion here on the blog and elsewhere since late last week. Whether the debate translates into a big turnout at the polls (I hope so) remains to be seen.
In Southborough’s only other contested race, Andrew Mills and Sam Stivers are both trying for a single 1-year seat on the Planning Board. Mills has been sitting on the board since he was appointed late last spring after member Mary Hynes retired. Stivers was the former chairman of the Zoning Board of Appeals.
Polls opened at 8:00 am and will remain open until 8:00 pm, so don’t forget to get out and vote. Need to know where to vote or who else is on the ballot? Check out this post.
I’ll have the election results tonight as soon as they’re available, so be sure to check back later.
