Seekonk Selectmen Vote for 1 Polling Station

Selectman Gary Sagar says there should be two.

The Seekonk Board of Selectmen voted Wednesday to continue with the status quo when it comes to elections. In a 4-1 decision, the selectmen decided the town will continue to have all voting done at Seekonk High School.

The dissenting vote came from Selectman Gary Sagar, who wanted to have two polling stations. Sagar also proposed the town hold its annual local election in November rather than April. The selectmen will vote on this possible change during a future meeting.

or you could host at Aitken School and Martin School which would serve both ends of the town well.

If there were to be any changes (which there won't) I think the objective should be to get out of the schools all together.

both of these are way too small to do two precints-- do the reaserch first and make suggestions after--- we dont have two locations in this town that would handle a presidential election if we got out of all the schools -- he actually said he got around 10 over three years not this year--

only been here a few years but very clear that the clerks handling of this issue is for the benifit of the whole town and the recent election proved it --we had no problems-- sounds like you have a personnal issue not a town concern

I hope to see your name on the ballot this april as you seem to have all the answers every thursday morning after the selectmen meet-- they never do the right thing so I hope you will get on the ballot and help instead of taking cheap shots every week with no info to back them -- thats why I left rhode island--all talk and no action !!
