Is 2020 an Election Against Which All Others Will Be Measured?

Just over half of Bedford’s registered voters have cast their ballots for the November 3 presidential election, either by early in-person voting or by using a mail-in ballot.

According to Town Clerk Bridget Rodrigue, “At the end of the day on Sunday, October 25, we have had 1,414 in-person early voters. We have received 3,780 mail-in ballots and 217 absentee ballots, for a total of 5,411 votes cast early. ”

Early voting in the Reed Room at Town Hall continues through 1 pm on Friday, and there are mail-in ballots that are yet to be returned.

Because the United States Postal Service could take as long as 6 days for a letter to reach Town Hall, a voter’s safest bet would be to hand-deliver their ballot to the Town’s drop box located in the doorframe to the right of the front entrance to Town Hall.

Even if a voter has a mail-in ballot, they are welcome at the polls for early voting or on Election Day, November 3, in the gymnasium at the John Glenn Middle School, 99 McMahon Road.

Early voting in the Reed Room at Town Hall will take place from 8 am until 4 pm on Wednesday and Thursday, October 28 and 29, and from 8 am until 1 pm on Friday, October 30. Reports indicate that there has been no waiting line for early in-person voting.

On Election Day, Tuesday, November 3, Bedford’s Polls at the John Glenn Middle School, 99 McMahon Road, will be open from 7 am until 8 pm.
