The annual Town Election is on Tuesday. That means that voters who applied to vote by mail are running out of time to get in their ballots.
The good news is that registered voters are only prohibited from voting in person if they already sent in a completed ballot. (So, if you submitted an application too late to get your ballot in time, it looks like no harm/no foul.)
As for casting the ballots once you receive them, they need to get to the Clerk’s office by 8:00 pm tomorrow, Tuesday the 11th. More good news, you don’t have to rely on the mail to get them there in time. You can also drop those in the Town’s dedicated voting box outside the Town House. (See image right.)
For those who prefer to vote in person, make sure to mark your calendars to vote on Tuesday between the hours of 6:30 am – 8:00 pm. The election will be held at Trottier Middle School’s gym for all three precincts. (You do need to know which precinct you are in once you get there. If you aren’t sure, you can check that here.)
If you still don’t know who you’re casting your ballots for, below is a reminder of who is running. I’ve included relevant links to candidates’ statements.
