    Town election season underway

    Nomination papers are now available for this year’s town election, set for May 6. The deadline to take out and return papers is March 25. Voters this year will fill eight townwide seats, including one on the Board of Selectmen and two on the School Committee. The others are town moderator, three seats on the library trustees, and a seat on the Housing Authority. Voters will also elect 51 Town Meeting members, including 48 for regular three-year terms and three to fill vacancies. The clerk’s office is also asking those who have not already done so to return their 2014 town census forms, noting that inclusion in the census is needed to remain on the active voter list.
