Don’t forget to vote next week

Election day is coming up!  Ballots must be postmarked no later than next Tuesday (the 5th), or placed in an official ballot drop box by 8 p.m. on the 5th.  Burlington’s official ballot drop box is outside the Parks and Recreation building on 900 E Fairhaven Ave — just a block away from the library!
