Lincoln news for Feb. 17

LINCOLN — Volunteers are needed for the culture study at Lincoln Community School. This year students at LCS will be visiting the Harlem Renaissance and they would love some volunteers. If you are interested and able to commit to Mondays, March 7, 14, 21 and 28 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. and Fridays, March 11 and 18 from 8:30 to 10:00 a.m., please email Beth Nelson at [email protected]. Come cook, paint, write, listen and learn!


Town Meeting ballots have arrived and we have begun to mail them to absentee voters. Please follow the instructions that come with your ballots. There are four pages of ballots on heavy card stock and they must all be placed inside the certificate envelope, in order to be counted. It’s okay if you want to refold them some other way in order to insert them in the voted ballot envelope. Be sure to sign the certificate and print your name on it so we can read it. After we check your name in, your ballots will be separated from the envelope and nobody will know how you voted. The privacy of your vote is very important!

Please use the outer return envelope with your name and address label on it, even if you don’t mail your voted ballots back to us. It helps us determine whose ballot we have received, and the barcode makes data entry into our ballot tracking system much quicker than typing your name.

We recommend you use our secure drop box at the town office to return your voted ballots. It is available 24/7 and the walkway is lighted. We empty the box every day.

Of course you can always mail your voted ballots back to us if that is easier. It will require .98 cents postage on the return envelope. Return them right away. We must receive your voted ballots by March 1 at 7 p.m. in order to count them.

You can also bring your ballots to Burnham Hall on Election Day, March 1. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. In-person voting will be available at Burnham Hall on March 1 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. We ask voters to please wear a mask and practice social distancing.

Until next time … Just Because It’s Hard Doesn’t Mean it’s Impossible. Don’t Focus On The Pain, Focus On The Progress. Mistakes Are Proof That You Are Trying.
