Dear fellow Hanoverians:
What a day! Unofficially, 2,234 Hanover residents showed up or voted by
mail in the middle of a pandemic for a local election. That’s the highest
Annual Town Election vote total since I have been Hanover’s Town Clerk. I
am so proud of you, Hanover – that’s over 20% for a local election. Who
does that? Hanover does! The unofficial election results are attached to
Further congratulations to Rhonda Nyman and Vanessa O’Connor – our newest
(do I need to mention two female?!) members of the Board of Selectman, and
to Ruth Lynch and Pete Miraglia, our returning and new (respectively)
members of the School Committee.
But for me, your election administrator, I am most proud of the good folks
who made all of this happen. They put themselves at risk so that democracy
could be served. It was our version of the front lines, and I could not be
more proud of the work we did yesterday. Every precinct balanced perfectly,
and of course, every single vote was counted! The booths were cleaned after
every voter, and every single voter wore a mask, stood in line, social
distanced, and was extraordinarily patient. Some of the folks who chipped
in represented HFD, HPD, HEMA, CERT, HHS, HDPW, HCDMI, Hanover Town Hall,
COVID-19 special volunteers, and my heroes, all of Hanover’s election
workers. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!
