Vote in the April 25 Budget Referendum!

The Town Budget Referendum will be held on Monday, April 25, in the Town Hall Meeting Room, 15 North Granby Road. The polls will be open from noon to 8 p.m. As with all opportunities to vote, if you can, please plan to bring an ID, preferably a photo ID to be checked off our official voter list to vote on a paper ballot. The check in tables will be separated based on STREET address, not last name.

As in the past, non-registered, but otherwise eligible voters who are Granby property owners will also be allowed to vote. They will need to fill out a special form at the assessor’s table if their name appears on the last published grand list. Absentee ballots can be filed in person with the Town Clerk prior to the vote, during Town Hall business hours after the public hearing. (There is insufficient time to do mailings for Referendums.) Absentee ballots are not available during the referendum, so the cutoff to issue an absentee ballot for the Referendum is noon on Monday, April 25.

High School Seniors Registration Drive

The Registrars of Voters will be conducting a Spring Voter Registration Drive at Granby Memorial High School on Wednesday, April 20. High school seniors who will be 18 years of age by the Nov. 8 elections will be eligible to register at this session. It would be helpful for those seniors who have state-issued IDs to have these with them to facilitate the registration process.

Poll workers are needed

The Registrar’s office is compiling an e-mail list of poll workers. Volunteer poll workers must be at least 16 years old and can choose to volunteer for a few hours, to fit their schedules. To be added to the list, e-mail the registrars at:  Poll worker training will be done in April for the referendum; in July if there is a municipal primary on August 9, and again in October for the Nov. 8 election. Poll worker training is required to serve; for more information or to apply contact the Registrars at:
