Plymouth Annual Town Election: May 14

Plymouth vote will get to choose candidates for Board of Selectman, School Committee, Planning Board, Redevelopment Authority, Housing Authority, Town Meeting representatives, and vote on one question.

The polls open for the Annual Town Election at 8 a.m. Saturday, May 14. and close at 8 p.m. that evening.

Voters will be able to select candidates in five town-wide races, as well as Town Meeting representatives for the current 14 precincts.

Here are the seats on the ballot:

  • Two Selectmen for three years;
  • Two members of the Plymouth School Committee for three
    years;
  • One member of the Planning Board for five years;
  • One member of the Redevelopment Authority for five years;
  • One member of the Housing Authority for five years;
  • 47 Town Meeting representatives, including
    • three representative from each precinct for a term of three years,
    • One representative from Precinct 3 for a term of one year,
    • One representative from Precinct 8 for a term of one year,
    • One representative from Precinct 9 for a term of one year,
    • One representative from Precinct 10 for a term of two years,
    • and One representative from Precinct 11 for a term of one year.

Voters will also be able to decide whether to ammend the Town Charter as proposed by Town Meeting.

Question 1 reads: Shall this Town approve the charter amendment proposed by the Town Meeting summarized below?

SUMMARY
The amendment revises Section 2-12-1 of the Town Charter, concerning
the composition of the Advisory and Finance Committee. The amendment deletes the requirement that a member be appointed from each precinct of the Town, and inserts in its place a provision that limits to three the number of members that may be appointed from any single precinct.

A YES VOTE would change the requirements applicable to appointment
of members of the Advisory and Finance Committee, limiting to three the
number of members that may be appointed from any precinct of the
Town.

A NO VOTE would make no change to the requirements applicable to
appointment to the Advisory and Finance Committee.

Plymouth Patch will post results from Saturday's election as soon as we have them.
