Election Day in Portsmouth -- please get out and vote for the Water Board
Today is Election Day for the Portsmouth Water and Fire District with two (uncontested) positions on the ballot. You can vote at the District's main office at 1944 East Main Road and polls will open at 7am to 8pm.
Please take a few minutes to vote today — even though this seems like a no-brainer (especially since both incumbents have, according to sources, been doing a good job). With a low-turnout election like this, it's always possible for write-in candidates to slip in, and remember that the Water District is a quasi-municipal agency with taxing authority.
Of the Board's seven seats, the positions of one (1) Moderator and one (1) Treasurer are up for election.
Running for the position of Moderator is incumbent Ronald L. Molleur of 15 Molleur Rd.
Running for the position of Treasurer is incumbent Allen J. Shers of 40 Roger Williams Ct.
As required by the recent change in State Law, voters will be required to show identification to vote in the District’s election.
