Town Hall is still closed to the public at this time.  Any Absentee or Early Voting applications I receive by noon on Monday, 6/22 will have their ballots put in the mail, but the  ballot may not reach the voter until Friday, or later.  Voters can return their ballot in the drop-box in front of Town Hall up to 2:00 pm on Saturday when the polls close to guarantee that it will be received.

If you did not get your ballot in time, you can vote in person on Saturday, outside, behind Town Hall.  The polls are open from 8 am - 2:00 pm
