Last Chance To Early Vote

Pro (green) and anti (red) new mega school signs created a gauntlet for student voters to negotiate

Friday at Town Hall is the last opportunity for Amherst registered voters to do the their civic duty in a most convient manner i.e. not standing in a long line. 

 Line at Student Union was consistent all day long

Today was the final day for UMass early voting and it was a pretty impressive turnout: 640 voters. Amherst Town Hall precinct handled 360. 

I couldn't help but notice advocates for and against ballot Question 5 -- the $67 million mega school -- were standing on the Student Union stairs, well within the 150 foot distance that is supposed to be maintained for campaign materials.

The Town Clerk said that rule does not apply for early voting although inside the Student Union a sign warned against campaigning "within the voting area."
