Voters enrolled in the Democratic and Republican parties will be selecting primary candidates for U.S. senator and representative to Congress, and for state Legislature. Democrats will choose a candidate for register of probate, and will rank choices in three-way races for state senator and U.S. senator.

All voters – whether enrolled in a political party or not – are eligible to vote on a state bond-issue referendum; and, to validate the $28.5 million school budget approved by the Town Council for fiscal 2021. [news article]
