Week ending: Nov 6, 2011

You get to cast your ballot on Tuesday. You can vote for change or to maintain the same, or a mix of both.  I find it as a good positive that there are contests for almost all the positions this time around. I hope that this also means we will get a good turn out!

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.

_Election Sign - Nov 8

"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:
