Anderson, Devine to vie for selectman's seat

(Continued)

Voters will head to the polls six days earlier than they typically do this spring. In the interest of improving voter turnout, town leaders moved the annual town election to Tuesday, April 30 — the same day as a special state primary to choose which candidates will run for the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by John Kerry, who now serves as U.S. secretary of state.

The last day to register to vote at the April 29 Annual Town Meeting or in the April 30 town election is April 9. Anyone wishing to vote in the state primary on April 30 must be registered by April 10. The Board of Registrars will conduct registration in the town clerk’s office from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on April 9 and 10. In addition to registering at the town clerk’s office, voters may also register at the Registry of Motor Vehicles and certain other state agencies. Voter registration by mail is also permitted.

A special state-wide election to fill Kerry’s seat is slated for Tuesday, June 25.
