November 3, 2020 Election Information



District 2 Polling Place Relocation

The Voter approved addition to the Rocky Hill Senior/Community Center and renovation of the Town Hill complex has begun. This construction activity has limited the parking and access to the voting area for District 2 voters.
 
Because of this disruption and limited access to the building, the polling location for District 2 voters for both the Presidential Preference Primaries (Republican and Democratic) on August 11, 2020 and the Presidential Election (for all voters),  November 3, 2020, is being moved to the new Moser School at 10 School Street. School Street is located off of Main St at the traffic light south of the West Street intersection.
