I am sorry Mr. Vice President, this is nothing to laugh at.

Avoid wait by registering early

To the editor:

We’re approaching the general (presidential) election on Nov. 6. Four years ago there were very long lines to register to vote. Remember, first you would have to stand in line to register, if you haven’t already, and then stand in line to get your ballot. You may want to think of registering earlier to save yourself some time. You need a license, a proof of domicile (where you live) like a car registration or utility bill and citizenship papers if you were born outside of the United States or her territories.

You can register to vote or request changes to your voter record every day that the town clerk’s office is open. They are open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. except lunch and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. except lunch. That’s a lot of chances to register instead of waiting for voting day and having to stand in line for who knows how long!

We have been keeping the supervisor’s office open the same hours for additional ease in registering to vote. Also, by law, we have sessions of the supervisors of the checklist and you can come in then to our office, Room 104 of the Town Hall, and register or request changes.

Currently, we will be having a session on Saturday, Oct. 27 from 11 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Of course, if there is a large turnout we will stay later.

Our military men and women fight for our rights and to give these rights to those in other countries. Exercise your right to vote — it is a privilege!

Supervisor of the Checklist
