Why is it so important that you vote next Thursday? How could we ever lose? Here’s why overrides fail:

  1. The “yes” voters see the large turnout at Town Meeting and get complacent. They are certain that all those “other” voters will go to the polls and assume that they don’t need to vote themselves.
  2. Because some people who voted “yes” at Town Meetings, when they are seated next to their friends and neighbors and the public pressure is on, are actually going to vote “no” in the privacy of the voting booth.
  3. Because, as in the past, the opposition will galvanize their troops to vote down the override at the polls.

Mark next Thursday, May 15 to vote.
Polls are open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.  It only takes a few minutes!
