“Voting in town elections is one of the most important responsibilities a citizen can have, and we know how important it is for many to be able to participate,” General Manager Mazzucco said. “We feel the ‘no-touch’ approach will allow those who choose to participate the ability to do so in a way that is safe and secure, and we encourage absentee voting for those who are not able to, or not comfortable with, coming to the polls next Monday.”
