Good Morning Folks!!

WOW what a day yesterday for voting!! I want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who turned out in person and via absentee! We had a record 93 absentee applications!!! Way to go Somerville!! We had a total of 174 voters this time around!! I also want to give a HUGE shoutout and THANK YOU to my Elections Team! Between my day crew and counters we got a very large ballot day done and had a stellar time doing it!!

I also want to thank each and every single person for their patience as we got through this while being in the middle of a pandemic. With a learning curve for pretty much everything, new practices that needed to be put in place, decisions needing to be made on very important questions, and just trying to be fabulous while doing it... well YOU DID IT!! 

Now for the stuff you've all been waiting for, the results for the Town Referendum Questions. 
Everything passed!! And passed with a BIG yes!! As for the Officials, I am happy to say everyone will be staying in the roles they are currently in!! All the counts are below for everyone. 

And again THANK YOU!!
