It will be a very special election and it would be nice to see a huge turnout this coming November 6. But you can only vote if you are registered, and the deadline is October 17. Call or visit City Hall (617-625-6600). Go to the election department, it takes only a few minutes. To those that wish to have an absentee ballot because of illness or out of the city on November 6 you can find out how you can vote as an absentee as well. Again, it would be nice to see a large turnout. We are very fortunate that we can pick our government officials. The entire election department staff is ready and eager to help anyone out with registration or questions, and besides, they have some nice candy to pick through while being waited on. Although the ladies up at the Water Department have a nice selection of candy, you can’t register to vote there. We thought we would mention their candy!
