2017 Voting and Town Meeting Postponed to Friday March 17, 2017

Hi,

Due to the promised inclement weather for Tuesday I am postponing Town Meeting and Voting to Friday March 17th.

We are expecting snow to start around 7 am and continue all day and night. Expected accumulation is anywhere from 10 to 20 inches with high winds. A perfect night to cuddle around the wood stove.

On Friday March 17th, polls will open at 11 am and will remain open until 7 pm.
From 7 pm to 8 pm we will count votes and set up chairs for the meeting.
The Meeting will start at 8 pm.

Volunteers are needed to help set up the Meeting and to count the votes. Those who wish to help count, please me me know directly by email at goff.rpg@gmail.com. The more volunteers we get the more likely it is that we will start on time.

See below for information on absentee ballots. One of the acceptable reasons for requesting an absentee ballot is work, or travel to/from work, contact the Town Clerk at 924-9250.

RSA 40:4 Duties. – 
    I. The moderator shall preside in the town meetings, regulate the business thereof, decide questions of order, and make a public declaration of every vote passed, and may prescribe rules of proceeding; but such rules may be altered by the town.
    II. In the event a weather emergency occurs on or before the date of a deliberative session or voting day of a meeting in a town, which the moderator reasonably believes may cause the roads to be hazardous or unsafe, the moderator may, up to 2 hours prior to the scheduled session, postpone and reschedule the deliberative session or voting day of the meeting to another reasonable date, place, and time certain. The date originally scheduled shall continue to be deemed the deliberative session or voting day of the meeting for purposes of satisfying statutory meeting date requirements; provided, that in towns or districts that have adopted RSA 40:13, the postponement shall not delay the deliberative session more than 72 hours. The moderator shall employ whatever means are available to inform citizens of the postponement and the rescheduled deliberative session or voting day.
