Lyme-Old Lyme Schools to be Closed Nov. 3 to Serve as OL Polling Station for Presidential Election

OLD LYME — The Lyme-Old Lyme (LOL) Schools Board of Education voted at their last (Jan. 8) meeting  to approve a 2020-2021 School Calendar, which includes all schools being closed on Tuesday, Nov. 3, in order for the schools to serve as the Old Lyme Polling Station for the 2020 Presidential Election.

Lyme-Old Lyme Schools Superintendent Ian Neviaser explained to LymeLine that in light of the very high turnout anticipated for the election in November, Old Lyme Registrars Cathy Carter (R) and Marylin Clark (D) have asked to “shift voting to the schools.” This is because there is significantly more space available at the schools than exists at the current polling station location of  the Cross Lane Firehouse.

The LOL Schools Board of Education has now agreed to that request for November 2020, but a permanent change is still under discussion.
