Vote tabulator testing Oct. 4

We will be testing the vote tabulator memory cards on Thursday, Oct. 4, at 2:30 p.m. at the Lincoln Town Office.  This is a routine procedure before all elections, and anyone is invited to observe the process.  This is to prepare for the Nov. 6, 2018 General Election.

The Nov. 6 General Election Polling Place is the Town Office

Polling hours are 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Nov. 6, 2018, at the TOWN OFFICE.  Ballots are now available for early voting during regular office hours.  If you need to have your ballot mailed to you, please contact your town clerk right away to make the request.  The office will be closed on Nov. 6 for all other business.  The Library is holding a bake sale on election day.

Request Absentee Ballots Now

Military and overseas voters should request absentee ballots for the November 6, 2018 General Election now.  As soon as the ballots are available, we will send them out to you so you will have sufficient time to vote and return them.  Call or email your Town Clerk.

Town Report Correction

There are TWO candidates for the Mt. Abraham Unified School District, Lincoln Director race on the ballot for March 6, 2018:  Annie Svitavsky and Sarah McClain are both running for this position.  Voters are reminded that you may only vote for ONE of these candidates.  We apologize for the omission of Annie’s name in the Town Report.
