Democracy Wins, Again: Quotes from Election Night in Bedford

By James Brosgol

On Saturday, March 9, 1,521 Bedford voters went to the polls for the 2019 Town Election. After accompanying my family to the polls earlier in the day, I returned by myself a few minutes before the doors were locked at 6 pm in order to see the results as quickly as possible. When I arrived, there was a nervous energy in the hall as people chatted while waiting for the results to be posted. This year was certainly more interesting than most, with three candidates running in a contested election for two seats as Selectmen.

Election Warden Patricia Crew opened the door to Bedford’s polling place at 8 o’clock sharp on Saturday morning, with just one voter waiting in line. There were reports of enthusiastic early voting, and the polls will be open until 6 pm, but the hordes were not out early.

Uncontested Local Races ~ A Disappointment

By Ryan Doucette, Voices @ Bedford High School

In continuation of my debut to Bedford’s governmental and political landscape, I had the privilege of attending the League of Women Voters’ Candidate Forum on Sunday, March 3 at the John Glenn Middle School. The event, which also aired on Bedford TV, aimed to educate the Bedford voters about the various candidates for local office prior to the town election on Saturday, March 9.

The candidates for the majority of offices, which were uncontested, were limited to only reading short campaign statements. However, the candidates for contested seats on the Library Board of Trustees and Selectmen were questioned more thoroughly by the attendees.
