Wolcott Election Ballot

Some candidates appear on more than one party, which means that they have been endorsed by those political parties.

Voters should only fill in the oval for ONE candidate for each office, evne if they appear more than once. This ensures an accurate count.

In some towns, redistricting has shifted voters from one polling place to another, but this has not happened in Wolcott. Since the overlapping districts include the entire town, there was no need to do so.

District 1 – Tyrell Middle School (south entrance)

District 2 – Wolcott High School

District 3 – Wakelee School (gym – park in back)
