Salem selectmen say fifth polling station needed
Town Moderator Chris Goodnow has been meeting with the supervisor of the checklist and the town clerk over the past several weeks to determine the best plan going forward to make sure elections, especially the high-turnout presidential elections, go smoother.
Selectman Pat Hargreaves said he didn’t see how any plan could work that only had four polling locations that included the Ingram Senior Center, where the majority of problems occurred during the 2012 presidential election.
Selectmen asked Goodnow to come back to them within 90 days with a more detailed plan for five polling locations.
In September 2012, voters approved a redistricting plan that cut the number of polling locations from six to four.
Selectman Michael Lyons said he was for the board taking responsibility for the redistricting and making the decision, while Selectman Stephen Campbell said he would like to see it go before the voters, even if it isn’t required by state statute.
