5 Things You Need to Know September 6 in Easton
A look at what is happening today.
1. Primary Elections Are Scheduled for Today
Easton residents are reminders that election day for State Primaries Today! For an overview of candidates, click here. Voting will be at Oliver Ames High School between 7 a.m. - 8 p.m. Below is a message from Town Clerk Jeremy Gillis relating to election day traffic:
Due to a mix of scheduling issues, this will be the first election held on a Thursday in Massachusetts since 1988. It is also the first week of school in Easton. In an effort to reduce traffic congestion during bus drop-off/Start of the School day, and during pick-up/end of school day, I am requesting that if voters can avoid the times of 7-7:30 AM and 2-2:30 PM IF POSSIBLE, it will greatly reduce wait times to vote and allow buses/parents to drop off/pick up quicker as well.
