Reminder: Primary Vote 8/14/2018

Primary Vote 8/14/18: Official Notice

Attention Whiting Voters:

REMINDER!

The Primary is August 14, 2018.  Voting opens at 7:00am until 7:00pm.  Sample ballots are posted and are available for review ahead of the voting day.

Whiting voters will also be asked to ratify and confirm the vote taken on June 26, 2018 at a special meeting/vote for improvements for the Fire Department and Town Garage.  The newspaper notices for this vote were submitted but never published. A vote to ratify and confirm will repair this, and rather than hold another separate vote, we decided to hold the vote the same day as the primary.

Please feel free to call the Town Office if you have questions or concerns.
