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.
