School budget revote to be drive–thru

Observer staff report

When residents turn up to vote on the second version of the Williston School District budget, they can do so from the comfort of their cars.

The Board of Civil Authority voted to conduct the budget revote as a drive–thru vote, Town Clerk Deb Beckett wrote in an email to the Observer.

Voting will still be held May 7 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Voters will enter at the Armory drive and exit by the police station. There will be three stops: first, to be checked off the checklist; second, to be handed a ballot, which voters fill out in their cars; finally, to drop the ballot in the box.

Beckett said there will also be a kiosk for anyone who wants to do a walk–in vote. The option of voting in the Armory will be kept open in case of bad weather.

Williston residents can vote anytime between now and May 7 by going to the Town Hall or requesting that a ballot be mailed to their home.
