Town clerk has absentee ballots

Absentee ballots are available for the June 25 special election for the US Senate seat left vacant when John Kerry became secretary of state. The ballots can be picked up or requested by mail, and must be returned by noon on June 24, according to the town clerk’s office. The clerk’s office is also reminding residents that the voting location for Precinct H has changed to Wellesley High School’s band room, which has direct access to the school’s eastern sidewalk. Voters cannot use the school’s main entrance, as it is locked for security reasons. Those parking at the high school should use visitor parking spaces along the driveway curve beyond the stop sign. Polls for the June 25 election will open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. For more information on polling places, absentee ballots, or other election issues, call 781-431-1019, ext. 2252, or visit www.wellesleyma.gov.
