Greenfield polls to move

GREENFIELD — The town has moved its polling location until further notice, due to the planned work on a new high school.

Town Clerk Maureen Winseck said construction has forced the town to move its polls, which have been located in the high school gymnasium for years, until construction is complete.

Winseck said voters in precincts 1 through 4 will vote in the Guiding Star Grange Hall at 401 Chapman St., and voters in precincts 5 through 9 will vote in the former Lunt Silversmith Design Center building. Both buildings are accessible.

She said those who will vote in the former Lunt building will need to park in the back of the building and enter through the Norwood Street entrance.

Winseck said all nine precincts will probably move back to the high school when construction is complete.

Town Council voted on the location change and will have to vote to return the polls to the high school when it is time.

Winseck said voters will use the new polling locations for the first time on April 30 for the special state primary election to choose the candidates who will vie for Sen. John Kerry’s seat in June.

On June 25, voters will go back to the grange and the former Lunt building for two elections — the annual town election and the special state election. Winseck said there will be two ballots at that one.

Winseck said voters will receive written notice from the town about the change in polling locations within the next couple of weeks.
