Roxbury used to have all elections at the School and had a separate entrance
but now the BCA approved to have all Australian Ballot votes at the Town
Office which is wonderful. I have room in the Meeting Room to set up the
booths and tables that are needed. I no longer have to transport my
materials to a separate building (except for floor type meetings). Is this
a possibility for your town?

Subject: Polling in Schools - Query for Clerks
The issue of school security in our town has now come up in the context
of the two elections this fall.
In our town, visitors are now required to sign in at a desk near the
school office and wear a badge.
What happens on Election Day? How do we maintain security and safety in
the school when it is wide open to whoever comes through the door on
this one day?
It hasn't been an issue for Town Meeting, because, of course, there is
The parking lot and buses coming and going isn't an issue either.
Can clerks who hold elections at their town's schools please respond?
Thanks, in advance.
