Very Dull Election Brings Out 22%

Despite e-mails, direct mail and cable access TV shows, only 22% of the town’s registered voters went to the polls April 28.

It appears there is no way to get people to care about voting when they don’t see clearcut issues.

There were only a few races on the ballot. John Shields got a free ride back to the Selectmen’s table. Both Mary Kelly and Lynda Lee Sheridan walked back to School Committee without a challenge.

The override election won’t happen until June.

Any guesses what the turnout will be for that election?
