Town Clerk Denise Graffeo is proposing adding two new polling locations in time for the March 6 Presidential Primary.
Presently, the Senior Center and the Tewksbury Public Library each host voting for residents of two wards (four precincts). This has created problems with slow lines to vote and a shortage of parking, especially during presidential elections, when voter turnout is especially high.
At Tuesday night's Board of Selectmen's meeting, Graffeo will recommenda adding polling locations at the Recreation Center on Livingson Street, as well as the Lowell Assembly of God Church at 965 Andover St.
Graffeo's proposal is as follows:
Senior Center -- Precincts 1 and 1A
Public Library -- Precincts 4 and 4A
Assembly of God Church --Precincts 3 and 3A
Recreation Center -- Precincts 2 and 2A
The Board of Selectmen's meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. and Graffeo's presentation is the first item on the agenda.
