Be Aware: Only One Voting Location In November

 Around Town, Home, Latest News  Comments Off on Be Aware: Only One Voting Location In November
Oct 182019
 

Jody Dietch, a candidate for first selectman, is concerned about the lack of wide-spread publicity about the voting location for the upcoming election, Tuesday, November 5th.  Her campaign wants to be sure that everyone in Orange knows that ALL VOTING will take place at High Plains Community Center this year.  Anyone who used to vote at Mary L Tracy School will now be voting at High Plains.
This is a change for this election.  Depending on how smoothly Tuesday, November 5th goes, will determine what happens for  2020.  All residents are encouraged to let their friends and neighbors know.
“We encourage the Registrars of Voters to have signage at Schoolhouse Lane and Orange Center Road, as well as Schoolhouse Lane and Tyler City Road, to help people who may not hear about the location change,” she said.
