Voting in the General Election on Tuesday, Nov. 3

The General Election is Tuesday, November 3. Polling hours are 8 am to 7 pm at Mason Elementary School, 13 Darling Hill Rd.

A mask is required to enter the school. As you make your way down the hall and turn right to the multipurpose room, you’ll notice conveniently placed little blue squares with an M in them marking off 6′ for social distancing.

Inside the multipurpose room, a greeter will assist you and let you know when to proceed to the ballot clerk. Traffic will be one-way.

Those who are unwilling or unable to wear masks must go to the side of the school by the cafeteria. (Please do not enter the school at the front door.) Non-mask voting will occur in the cafeteria:

* Only one person will be allowed in at a time to vote.
* Please have your ID ready when the greeter opens the door.
* Hand your ID to the greeter and continue to wait outside.
* The greeter will take your ID to the ballot clerk, check you in and come back with your voting materials. At that time, you will be allowed in to vote.
* Hand your ballot back to Deputy Town Clerk Suzanne Kelly, who will put your ballot in the ballot box. By law, voters are NOT allowed to put their own ballots in the ballot box.

The Town of Mason and its residents thank Principal Kristen Kivela and the school staff for preparing the school for this important day.

Drug Take Back Day tomorrow (Oct. 24) in Mason

Mason Police Department is taking back unwanted prescription drugs on Saturday, October 24, from 10 am to 2 pm at 38 Darling Hill Road.  Bring your pills for disposal OUTSIDE the Mason Police Station.  NO questions asked.

This event is Mason’s 9th year co-sponsoring with Mason Conservation Commission to prevent drugs from being flushed and ending up in our valuable water supply as ALL Mason homes have private wells.  

This provides the public the opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the United States are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. 

Last fall, Americans turned in nearly 883,000 pounds of prescription drugs at nearly 6,300 sites operated by the DEA and almost 5,000 of its state and local law enforcement partners. DEA, along with its law enforcement partners, has now collected nearly 6,350 tons of expired, unused, and unwanted prescription medications since the inception of the National Prescription Drug Take Back Initiative in 2010.

For more information, go to www.DEATakeBack.com  or call Mason Police Department at 603.878.1111.

Public notice: Preprocessing of absentee ballots for the General Election

Due to unusually large volume, Absentee Ballots for the Presidential Election — to be held November 3, 2020 at the Mason Elementary School from 8 am to 7 pm — will be preprocessed on Thursday, October 29, at 4:30 pm at the Town Hall.

Preprocessing allows the Moderator to open the outer envelope only of the returned Absentee Ballot and make a notation on the checklist that the ballot has been returned in order to expedite processing on election day. The affidavit envelopes, which must be properly signed, with the ballots inside will not be opened and properly marked on the checklist until election day.
