864 voted on election day; 147 showed up for town meeting

To the editor,
Reading The Sanbornton Town Meeting Minutes, which can be found on the town website, you will note that of the two hand votes taken at the meeting; 147 people voted on one article and 120 on another. What a democratic process — 120-147 people voting out of 2,178 registered voters, I can't believe that anyone would in good conscience favor such a poor response when SB-2 would have brought out many more voters
On election day 864 people voted, and whatever the outcome they were able to vote on election day from 7 AM-7 PM. To bad the other 724 voters who showed up on Election Day couldn't make it to the Town Meeting.
