On Monday, April 23, the Town Budget Referendum will be held in the Town Hall Meeting Room in Granby Town Hall, 15 North Granby Road. The polls will be open from noon to 8 p.m. As with all opportunities to vote, plan to bring identification so you can be checked off the official voter list and issued a paper ballot. The check-in tables will be separated by street address, not last name. As in the past, non-registered, but otherwise eligible voters who own property in Granby in their own name, will also be allowed to vote. They will need to fill out a special form at the assessor’s table. Absentee ballots can be filed in person with the Town Clerk prior to the voting hours, not during the referendum.
Poll workers are needed
The registrar’s office is compiling an e-mail list of poll workers. Poll workers can be volunteers or paid, must be at least 16 years old and may choose to volunteer for a few hours, or as desired to fit their schedules. For more information, or to be added to the list, please email the registrars at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Poll worker training will be done in April for the April 23 referendum and in June/July if there is an August 14 primary, and again in October for the November 6 election. Poll worker training is required to serve.
High school senior registration drive
The Registrars of Voters will be conducting a Spring Voter Registration Drive at the Granby Memorial High School on Wednesday, April 4. High school seniors who will be 18 years of age by the Nov. 6 elections will be eligible to register at this session. It would be helpful for those seniors who have Connecticut state-issued IDs to have these with them to facilitate the registration process.
