MILLBURY, Mass. —The Town of Millbury will combine the town election with the state primary on April 30, voting for the state's new senator as well as selecting town officials.
Town Clerk Jayne Davolio discussed the election plan with the Board of Selectmen Tuesday. Everything will be separate, Davolio said. Voting lists, and ballots will be done at the normal precinct tables but each will have a different check-in.
Voters will be issued two ballots and each ballot has timing marks on the side. The timing marks coincide with the voting machines and the ballots will be placed in separate machines for the local and state tally.
At the end of the night, there will be two separate tally tapes for each election along with separate tracking sheets. Davolio will also run a training day for poll workers just prior to the election to work out any potential problems, but she informed the board that none are expected.
The election will be held at the Millbury Memorial High School from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The deadline for registering to vote in the local and state primary elections is Weds. April 10. The deadline for registering in the special June 25 state election is Weds. June 5.
Any questions may be directed at the Town Clerk’s Office, 508-865-9110.
