    Drive carefully tomorrow!

    We just learned that the storm earlier in the week set Casella back, so they're collecting on Saturday. Which you probably guessed already.


    Supervisors of the Checklist Meeting

    The Supervisors of the Checklist will meet at the Orange Townhouse on Monday, March 6, 6:30-7:00 PM.

    No changes to the checklist may be after this session until election day. This is your last chance to change your name or address on the checklist. But qualified citizens may register to vote at the Town House on election day in all elections.

    No matter when or where you register to vote, you will be required to fill out a standard voter registration form, and you will be asked to show proof of identity, age, citizenship, and domicile. These qualifications may be established by signing affidavit(s). You have to go through this trouble only if you're not registered in Orange.

    For more information about how to register to vote, click here or call 1-866-OUR-VOTE.
