Rockland: Selectmen to decide whether to O.K. dual elections

On Tuesday, Rockland selectmen will vote on whether to push back town elections to coincide with the April 30th primary election for the Senate seat vacated by John Kerry.

Rockland elections usually take place the second Saturday in April, and officials say holding both elections the same day could save the community as much as $10,000.

Rockland residents are encouraged to make their voices heard at the Board of Selectmen meeting at 7:00 p.m.

The town of Marshfield has already decided to move its town election back three days to coincide with the Senate primary election.

The general election for the Senate seat takes place June 25.
