Shore Road Closure

8/9/2022 8:16AM: Due to a failed culvert, Shore Road will be CLOSED to through traffic from Pond Ave to Forrest Ave while public works crews work to replace it. This is in the vicinity of the Ellsworth Elementary Middle School. We estimate the road will be closed for the next day or two.

As stated in the Secretary of State’s memo for September 2021 mailing #2:

The deadline for a voter to request an absentee ballot, including a ballot voted in the presence of the clerk, is Thursday, October 28, 2021, unless the voter completes a special circumstance application.

The “special circumstances” are:

  • An unexpected absence from the municipality during the entire time the polls are open on Election Day (8:00 AM – 8:00 PM);
  • A physical disability;
  • An inability to travel to the polls because the voter is a resident of a coastal island ward or precinct;
  • An incapacity or illness that has resulted in the voter being unable to leave home or a treatment facility.
