General Election Information

Absentee Ballot Processing Saturday, October 31

We have received many absentee ballots and we will partially process them on Saturday, October 31st, at 9 am in the Select Board’s conference room (Town Office Building). The Moderator, Town Clerk, a Supervisor of the Checklist, and a Ballot Clerk will all be present. The public is welcome to observe.

Partial pre-processing creates an opportunity for voters to be notified if they failed to properly complete or return the absentee ballot with a completed affidavit and for the voter to correct the error on or before election day, ensuring your vote is counted.

We will NOT be opening the affidavit envelope (the envelope you put your ballot in and sealed). Those will be opened and read at the election as usual.

Please know that our town has a very committed Election crew. Your vote counts and it is very important to us.

Respectfully,

Deborah Ziemba

Corrected Sun., Oct 24, 03:10 PM (updated the date of processing)

New Hampshire Downloadable Books

In case the library is closed, New Hampshire Downloadable Books is always open! Audio books, Ebooks, and magazines are available to download for FREE with a valid library card and a prefix. Check out the NHDB website: nh.lib.overdrive.com

If you don't currently have a library card and would like one, please either email the library at webstermemlib@gmail.com, or call 764-5818. Staff will be checking email and voicemail. Please include your name, phone # and physical address.

If you have a library card and don't know the number because you can't find the card, or don't have the prefix, please call or email the library. It may take a day or two to get back to you as staff will not have anyone's information at home.

Also, and this is important, PLEASE DO NOT GUESS AT YOUR LIBRARY CARD NUMBER when using NHDB. If you are unsure and use someone else's library card, that person will not be able to check anything out because there are limits to checkouts.
