Be patient and confident on Election Day

It’s the time of year where many of us give thanks for the blessings in our lives. In Granby, we have a lot to be thankful for. One such blessing is the hard work and dedication of our election officials. Over the past few months, our registrars, our town clerk and her staff and a group of trained volunteers have been working diligently to ensure that voters have the best possible experience on election day. 

The process will be safe, secure and accurate. But we need your help. We are expecting a very strong turnout, and with the safety measures that will be in place, voters may, especially during peak hours, experience wait times. Prepare for the weather—dress warmly and bring an umbrella (if necessary), a cup of coffee and a mask. If you can, avoid the early morning and evening hours.

Above all, please be patient, cooperative, respectful and kind.

But, rest assured, every registered voter will get an opportunity to vote, so long as they are in line by 8 p.m. or their absentee ballot is placed in the ballot box by that time. Every vote will be counted and only once.

In a year where there are so many additional stresses in our lives, worrying about the integrity of our election process in Granby is not one of them.

So, get out and vote, and while you’re out, say hello to a neighbor or friend.
