You ask...Patch Answers: What do I Need to Know for Election Tuesday

Westwood Patch is here to provide you with some of the basics about Election Tuesday, including where to vote and who's on the ballot.

Election time can be confusing. All those contested races. All those names. All those television commercials confusing about all those names in the contested races.

But Westwood Patch is here to help you out. You asked for some information about Election Tuesday... Patch is here to give you the answers.

Election Day is Tuesday, November 6.

There are four voting precincts in Westwood. Precinct 1 is at the Council on Aging (60 Nahatan St.). Precinct 2 is located at the Sheehan School (549 Pond St.). Precinct 3 is at the Hanlon School (790 Gay St). Precinct 4 is at the Downey School (250 Downey St.).

If you are unsure of where you are supposed to go to vote, visit this website and enter in your address. You can also contact the Town Clerk's office.

Here is a list of candidates on the ballot.

Westwood Town Clerk Dottie Powers expects at least 90% of registered voters to turnout this election. There are approximately 10,000 registered voters in town.

"There will be lines," Powers said. "We'll do the best we can [to move them along]."

Powers also reminds voters that school is in session and to be aware of young children in the area.

The polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. If you are already in line and haven't gotten to cast your ballot at 8 p.m., you will still be able to vote.

The Town Clerk's office will be open on Election Day, but only for Election business. Again, if you have any additional questions you can contact the Town Clerk's office.
