The voting booths open on Tuesday, Nov 8 at 6:00 AM and close at 8:00 PM. Absentee ballots can be filed at the Town Clerks office through noon on Monday, Nov 7.
"We all" is wishful thinking. We all have the opportunity and civic duty to vote. History has shown that 'off year' local elections usually yield less than 20% turnout of the eligible voters.
Current Town Clerk Debbie Pellegri (facing a challenge this year from Deb Bartlett) confirmed that the total registered voters was 19,991. These voters are spread among the precincts as follows:
Pct. 1 2,288
Pct. 2 2,470
Pct. 3 2,448
Pct. 4 2,684
Pct. 5 2,477
Pct. 6 2,379
Pct. 7 2,487
Pct. 8. 2,758
If you need to review who the candidates are, and for what positions they are running for, I have the information all in one place. The election collection can be found here:
