4 thoughts on “Most Watertown Voting Locations Will be Usual Spots, Council to Examine Election Decision Process

  1. I would like to know who dropped the ball on the proposed Precinct 1 & 3 move to Hosmer. It was announced here as a done deal but now what is being said is that it has been “suggested” that the precincts move to Hosmer. Thanks to Angie K for getting Watertown to tap the brakes on this proposed move of the polling place.

    • No one “dropped the ball”. Did you read the article saying the precincts “may” be moved? And the part where the City Council has the final say? I never saw any reference to this being a “done deal” and frankly it’s unfair to cast aspersions on the City Clerk here.

      • I did not mention the City Clerk. What was posted here read that the precincts 1 & 3 would all be at the Hosmer School going forward. In response to that, Angie K wrote a letter to the editor that brought up very valid and strong points on why the precincts 1 & 3 should stay at the Hellenic Center. And, after that letter is published, it is written in the Watertown News that there would be no change in polling locations. I am only left to surmise that there is some confusion at city hall on WHO decides where the polling places will be.

  2. Everyone please be aware: I would not waste my time and energy to send communication to the Honorable City Council on 08/05/2022, without substantiating documentation.. All materials are readily available.

    Subsequently, on 08/06/2022 my transmittal was posted as a Letter to the Editor. Linked was the 08/01/2022 Notify Me email from the City that clearly stated: “Please be aware that changes have been made to some of the Polling Precincts”. I presume the document on Watertownmanews has been deleted so as not to confuse with the amended notification, voted by the City Council. Thank you.
