One Polling Site for the Election
For the Gubernatorial Election on Tuesday, Nov. 6, the polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. All Granby residents will vote in the Granby Community Gym, located in Granby Memorial High School in the center of town. Traffic is anticipated to be moderate to heavy. It is recommended that drivers access the community gym using the high school’s entrance off North Granby Road, Route 189, next to Public Works, and leave the polls from Salmon Brook Street, Route 10/202, next to the Middle School. All Granby schools will be closed on Election Day, but the registrars strongly recommend voting between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. if you have the option to do so, as the heaviest voting will be between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m., and the second rush will be between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.
