There is a bond article on the Town warrant this year. I know, I know, you're thinking "how come we haven't heard about this before? Those &#%!@?!" Selectmen, slipped that one right by us.
Okay, back to reality. It's a hot topic alright. We will be voting at some point on this article come March 12th.
The process to vote on the bond is the point of this post. Without quoting NH RSA's, the law requires this article to be placed first on the warrant and that in order to pass, requires a two thirds majority. Voting must be by secret ballot and will begin after the discussion on the article is completed. It then must continue for no less than 60 minutes, but can continue as long as the moderator allows or as the legislative body moves and approves.
The real point I want to make is that the article discussion will start shortly after the School District annual meeting ends ( probably around 9:30am or so ). Even if you can't or don't want to attend the entire meeting, you can come by to vote on just this article ( maybe after you get a text message or a Tweet after the discussion is over that the ballot box is open) and just check in with the Supervisors of the check list, get your ballot, drop it in the box and off you go, back to work or play. No need to hang all day. And by the way, discussion and voting on the subsequent articles will continue while the article 2 voting continues. So you have plenty of opportunity to come and vote and have your say on this important issue. 15 minutes or so is all it will take.
