RUMFORD — Officials in the Town Clerk's Office are advising people seeking absentee ballots that Thursday, Nov. 3, is the last day to get them.
Deputy Clerk Bev Thorne said Wednesday that there is a new statewide deadline for voting by absentee ballot. There are also signs on the office counter alerting people.
Previously, absentee ballots could be taken out on Election Day. Not anymore, Thorne said.
Now, the last day to get them is five days before the election, which this year is Nov. 8.
“We're trying to inform people of it,” she said. “I don't think most people know about it yet.”
As of Wednesday morning, Thorne said 60 people have turned in their absentee ballots.
