[ARCHIVED] Volunteers Needed for Special Town Meeting - 1/19/22

Tellers and ballot counters are needed for the Concord Special Town
 Meeting on Thursday, January 19, 2022 at 7 pm at Concord-Carlisle High School.

Tellers are responsible for counting standing votes (as opposed to
 secret ballots) and collecting secret ballots. If you can walk around
 and count, you have the skills necessary to be a teller. Tellers work in
 pairs; training will be provided before the meeting.
Ballot counters are responsible for counting the marks in the yes and no
 boxes for a secret ballot. Counters sit in chairs most of the time
 during the count. The last secret ballot happened in 2013, but counters
 are needed at every Town Meeting so that we are ready for another. If
 there is a secret ballot, the ballot supervisors will train the counters
 at that time and guide them throughout the process.
The other qualifications for either position are a willingness to commit
 to remain to the end of that day's session and a commitment to fair and
 transparent democracy.
If you are interested in being either a teller or ballot counter for the
 Concord Special Town Meeting, or would like more information to help you
 decide, please respond
