Plymouth: Town Clerk preps for primary

It’s less than two weeks before the state primary and the Plymouth Town Clerk has an update.

Town Clerk Lawrence Pizer says there are some things voters should be aware of:

“They should know that they need to be registered to vote now. The close of registration was on August 20th. So, you can’t change parties, you can’t add a registration, can’t change your address. “

And, if you are registered:

“If you’re a Democrat, you get to vote in the Democratic Primary, if you’re a Republican, you get to vote in the Republican Primary, and if you’re unenrolled, you get to choose your ballot. If you’re member of another political designation, then you’re not eligible to vote.”

How does it look now in terms of turnout?

“Well, we predict turnout by the excitement that we see in the office and also by the number of absentee ballots we’ve received. There’s not been very much excitement and very, very few absentee ballots.”

On September 9th, the polls will open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.
