City Council to Vote Wed. on Proposed Polling Place Changes: 4 for COVID-19 Safety, 1 for Voter ConvenienceSaturday, August 1, 2020
On Wednesday, August 5, the Somerville City Council will hold a special meeting at 7 p.m. One item on the agenda will be a vote on moving five polling places. Four of the changes are being made to allow for necessary COVID-19 safety precautions to be taken. A fifth change, which moves a polling location from the Kennedy School to the Dilboy Post, was made in response to routing concerns voiced by both pedestrians and drivers. This public meeting will be held virtually, and will also include public testimony on Tufts University's reopening plan.
