Town Moderator Harry Blood spoke to the BoS last evening about the upcoming election day and to review some of the procedures to keep things moving smoothly. There may be a record number of absentee ballots and perhaps many write-in votes, which will take considerable time to process.
Everyone working the polls Tuesday will be volunteers doing the best they can, and if everyone is patient and has their voter ID handy before they come in, it will go a long ways to keeping the day going smoothly.
As per RSA 658:21-a Selectmen Pro Tem, as I will not be working the polls, I have appointed Linda Punturieri to be my replacement. Selectman Bartlett appointed Richard Wakefield as his Selectmen Pro Tem as he will not be available that day.
If you cannot get to the polls, you can still get an absentee ballot until Monday November 7th at 5pm at the Town Clerks office.
Lastly, look all the way down the ballot when you vote as there are numerous local and state offices on the ballot.
