BELMONT — The petitioners who would like to see the voters choose SB2, or official ballot voting, in the Shaker Regional School District have successfully resubmitted their petition in time to meet the deadline.
Business Administrator Deb Thompson said yesterday there aren't as many signatures on this petition as there were on the original one, which was rejected for technical reasons, and the warrant article will appear on the ballot. Public hearings on the Official Ballot Law will be held on Feb. 9 in Belmont and Feb. 16 in Canterbury.
Voting day for the election of School Board members and the warrant article to institute the Official Ballot Law to Shaker Regional is on March 4, which was incorrectly reported in yesterday's Daily Sun. The polls open at 11 a.m. at the Belmont High School and the annual district meeting convenes after the polls close at 7 p.m.
Traditionally, the polls for the Shaker School District have been open from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. for election of board members and the business portion of he meeting convened at 7 p.m. Thompson said the District's lawyers advised them earlier this year that the district needed to have its polls open no later than 11 a.m.
